    I enjoyed how Medvedev handled the booing.

    New Yorkers do like to boo.
    Ludicrous considering he was clearly injured. He had a similar issue in the earlier rounds. Though I'm not quite sure (other than the impact on ball toss, and just general pain) what a left shoulder injury would do with a right-handed player's serve (insert 1-hander line here)

    There are strict rules over what they can call a timeout for - as opposed to treatment between changeovers. Fitness/conditioning related issues such as cramp aren't (which is why Murray had to have his thigh massaged at a changeover in Mallorca) nor are pre-existing medical conditions (so again Murray vs Querrey in 2017 Wimbledon, because he had the hip injury since losing in the French semis, no timeouts, he had to continue as it was or retire).

    So Novak's shoulder was clearly "better" from the earlier issue or he wouldn't have been allowed the trainer.

    Medvedev getting the strapping in the first set against Stan, on his thigh (and then off two games later) is a bit baffling.

    Murray reaches his first semi final since French Open 2017 - and wins his first title (beat Wawrinka in 3 sets). Up to about 125 in the world now.
