US Open 2021

The US Open 2021 finals could not have been better or worse for the tennis lovers in what happened in New York. The match between the Russian, Daniil Medvedev, and the world number 1, Novak Djokovic, had it all: fierceness, intensity, and courage.

When you look at the form of Djokovic, you know he is one of the best to play the game, maybe even the greatest. Additionally, the Serbian had won all the other 3 Grand Slams this calendar year. Moreover, he also tied his tally of career Grand Slams to Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. However, the world number 2, Medvedev, made sure not to lose his cool. He went on to win the finals in straight sets by 6-4, 6-4, 6-4. Additionally, this was the first Grand Slam title for the 25 year old Russian.

Novak Djokovic was 27 games unbeaten in the Grand Slams and could have become the first individual since 1969 to win all the Grand Slams in a calendar year. However, the Serbian was far from his best and made a lot of unforced errors.
