Novak hit one of the brilliant backhands of all time to grab a double break in the 5th. After not quite focusing in the first two sets and allowing Sinner to take the lead, he went into 5 set mode.
That’s the difference in Majors….it’s really a different game….like a 400 metres versus a 1500 metres. Why can’t some people get this? I guess they never played the game where winning a set off the club champion vs sustaining it to win the match is also a different game.
And Novak gave a charming, humorous interview at the end. To me of the Big 3, and I like all of them, Novak comes across as the most human and real. Tennis is incredibly lucky to have him.
