    Started out rather routine and pedestrian then Meddy Bear stepped up to the plate big time! I got very nervous for Rafa. So glad he prevailed tho'. But, wow, sooooo close! Great speech from MB too. I wish more players were more open and honest like him, too many are robotic dealing with the media and fans. #19! There are NO WORDS! Well done, Rafa. Would love to see him take over Fed's haulage.
    Andy. Rafa. Milos. What's not to like?

    I would also like to see Rafa take over as GOAT I think he can. I knew very little about Medvedev until this tournament but to me he has the slightly crazy look of the multi-slam winner. Wow he did well and I thoroughly enjoyed it even though I had to watch set by set in between sleep and work today. A really epic fantastic match.
    Andy Murray - more exciting than a carnival weekend in Rio

    What a match!!! Amazing shots and even though I only watched today I had no idea who had won. Not one person has mentioned the tennis to me (apart from Banskoboy) and don't think they even know it's on.

    Really please Rafa won but Danil has grown on me, a little! Still haven't forgiven him for the Feli episode but he's young.......

    Rafa really close now, we can't have 2 goats at once can we?

    I'm obviously suffering from withdrawal symptoms, and needed a tennis fix, so I've just watched a replay of the boys' singles final. It was a good watch, those kids are good! If you want to see what it's like having no-let serves, watch it! It didn't happen too often. The ball did occasionally clip the net and made no significant difference, and a couple of times the ball just dropped over the net forcing them to scramble. I would like to see no-let serves everywhere. Overall, it would make little difference and would keep the rhythm of the match going which I think would be better. I also heard Martina in commentary last night advocating abolishing the let serve.

    No lets is something I could live with, unlike no-ad scoring, which is just wrong.

    Just feels wrong, tennis is so fair because you always have to win by 2 points.
