Novak Djokovic defeated Daniil Medvedev in straight sets yesterday to win his fourth US Open. He also equaled a record-breaking 24th Grand Slam singles title, avenging his loss to the Russian in the final two years ago.
36-year-old Djokovic won 6-3, 7-6 (7/5), 6-3 to become the oldest men’s champion in New York in the Open era. The Serbian is the first man to win three Grand Slam events in the same season four times.
This crowned his impending return to world number 1 in the most fitting ways inside the Arthur Ashe Stadium.
Rod Laver became the first man to win all four Grand Slams in the same year back in 1969. Medvedev defeated Novak Djokovic in straight sets in 2021 to stop him from joining Laver in those ranks.
In that occasion, Djokovic admitted to feeling overwhelmed. But there were a few senses of nerves as he quickly took command of Sundy’s championship match.
Medvedev dethroned last year’s champion Carlos Alcaraz with a “12 out of 10” performance in the semi-finals. However, he struggled to replicate his very best consistently against an imperious Djokovic.
