World No.1 Novak Djokovic faces Daniil Medvedev (World No.2) in the 2021 US Open final on Sunday, September 12.
Great minds think alike. Serbian world No.1 challenges No.2 seed Daniil Medvedev for the 2021 US Open final on Sunday, September 12 (10:30 p.m.). Fallen to Alexander Zverev in five sets in the semi-final, Novak Djokovic will play his 31st final of a Grand Slam tournament and thus equalize Roger Federer’s record. Better yet, the Serbian is only one Grand Slam calendar victory after winning all the major titles this season (Roland Garros, Australian Open, and Wimbledon).
Opposite, world No. 2 Daniil Medvedev defeated Canadian Félix Auger-Aliassime in three sets in the previous round. The Russian has never won a Grand Slam tournament but will try to sign the feat of his young career against the insolent Djokovic, who has already defeated him in the final of the Australian Open 2021. In eight confrontations in total, Novak Djokovic has lost only three times against Medvedev. Follow the match live!
