- Daniel Medvedev defeated Djokovic 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 in the final
- Novak Djokovic reached the final of the US Open for the ninth time
Russia’s Daniel Medvedev defeated world number one Novak Djokovic of Serbia 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 in straight sets to clinch his first Grand Slam title in the men’s singles final of the US Open. With this defeat, Novak Djokovic’s dream of winning the 21st Grand Slam has now gone awry.
Medvedev won his first Grand Slam and settled Djokovic
Djokovic, who is hoping to win his 21st Grand Slam title, did not feel in his rhythm and lost three sets in a row (6-4, 6-4, 6-4). It is also the first Grand Slam title for 25-year-old Medvedev, who reached the Grand Slam final for the third time. Earlier this year, he also reached the final of the Australian Open where Novak Djokovic prevented him from winning the title. Now, in the last Grand Slam of the year, Daniel Medvedev stopped Novak Djokovic from making history by winning the US Open. Overall, it can be said that Medvedev settled his account with Djokovic.
… and Djokovic’s dream was shattered

The dream of Calendar Slam remained unfulfilled

Djokovic reached the final of the US Open for the 9th time
