Novak Djokovic secures historic 24th grand slam title at US Open – video | Sport

Novak Djokovic secured a record-extending 24th grand slam title and his fourth US Open crown after a stunning victory over Daniil Medvedev in the final on Sunday. The 36 year-old overcame his Russian opponent in straight sets, winning 6-3, 7-6 (5), 6-3.

The scoreline doesn’t reflect the tenacity of his opponent’s performance, forcing the champion into tense and lengthy rallies at Flushing Meadows in New York. Victory earned Djokovic revenge for his loss to Medvedev in the 2021 final, and puts him two ahead of Rafael Nadal on the all-time men’s grand slam winners list.
