In a stunning display of skill and determination, Novak Djokovic triumphed over Daniil Medvedev to claim his 24th grand slam singles title at the US Open on Sunday. With this victory, Djokovic further solidifies his status as one of the greatest tennis players of all time, matching Margaret Court's record for the most all-time grand slam titles.

This thrilling final was a rematch of the 2021 US Open final, in which Medvedev had emerged victorious. However, Djokovic was determined to avenge his loss and put on a dominant performance at Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York.

From the very beginning of the match, Djokovic showcased his exceptional skills, never facing a break point in the first set and hitting an impressive 12 winners in just nine games. It was clear that he was in top form and ready to claim the title. Notably, Djokovic has an incredible track record at the US Open when winning the first set, with his only loss in such a situation coming back in 2016.

The second set proved to be more closely contested, with both players exchanging games in a thrilling back and forth. After an hour and 45 minutes of intense competition, Djokovic emerged victorious in the tiebreak, securing a crucial lead.

With the momentum on his side and the prospect of a fourth US Open title within reach, Djokovic continued to dominate the match, ultimately needing just one championship point to secure the historic title.

This victory also cements Djokovic's place in history as the oldest man to win the US Open singles title in the Open era. Additionally, he becomes the first man to win three grand slam titles in a single season for the fourth time, having previously achieved this feat in 2011, 2015, and 2021.

Furthermore, Djokovic now extends his lead over his closest competitors, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer, for the most men's singles titles of all time. With his 24th grand slam title, he is inching closer to becoming the all-time winningest player, an accomplishment he may achieve at the Australian Open in January 2024.

It is worth noting that Djokovic's journey to this victory was not without obstacles. As an unvaccinated player, he had been unable to enter the country for the past two years due to Covid-19 restrictions. However, with the lifting of vaccine requirements for non-US travelers earlier this year, Djokovic was finally able to make his triumphant return to the United States and claim his well-deserved victory at the US Open.

As Djokovic continues to make history and awe tennis fans around the world with his exceptional talent, one thing is clear – he is truly a force to be reckoned with in the world of tennis. With his sights now set on surpassing Margaret Court's record, Djokovic's legacy as one of the greatest tennis players of all time is firmly secured.
