US Open Final – Medvedev Stuns Djokovic: Djokovic’s bid to sweep the US, French and Australian Opens and Wimbledon in the same year for the first time since Rod Laver did it 52 years ago collapsed at the last hurdle, with 83-year-old Aussie legend Laver among 23,700 watching at Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Djokovic missed out on his fourth US Open title and will enter 2022 tied with “Big Three” rivals Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, both absent with injuries, on an all-time record 20 men’s Slam titles.

Instead of joining immortals Laver and Don Budge, who completed the first men’s Slam in 1938, Djokovic became the third man to fall at the final attempting to complete the Slam after Australians Jack Crawford in 1933 and Lew Hoad in 1956.

Medvedev, 25, became the third Russian man to win a Grand Slam title after Yevgeny Kafelnikov at the 1996 French Open and 1999 Australian Open and Marat Safin at the 2000 US Open and 2005 Australian Open.

Djokovic 4 vs Medvedev 6

The Russian’s serve has been a strength today, but he nearly let that last game slip away. Quickly pocketing a 40-0 lead, a double fault erased his first set point, and a backhand miss down-the-line ended a 18-shot rally to erase the second. The third time? A charm. An ill-timed forehand drop shot drew Djokovic into the net, but he pushed the backhand pass wide to lose the set.
