Medvedev denies Djokovic

Posted on

Russia's Daniil Medvedev won his first Grand Slam tennis title, beating Novak Djokovic of Serbia 6-4 6-4 6-4 to win the US Open Men's Singles title at Flushing Meadows in New York.

In doing so, Medvedev denied Djokovic a calendar year clean sweep of the four biggest tournaments in the sport. The World No.1 had already won the Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon titles this year. It's a feat that has not been completed by a male player since 1969.

Djokovic was also chasing a record 21st Grand Slam men's crown.
