Victory would have seen him become the first male player since Rod Laver in 1969 to will all four major singles’ tournaments in the same year.

 

 

But despite cruising to the final, Djokovic lost to his Russian opponent in straight sets and remained tied on 20 career Grand Slam success with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

 

 

Despite the loss, Murray has praised the Serb for his incredible achievements over the course of the year, and said his run proved that it is an achievable feat. The Scot was also keen to point out that, while they were not all in the same calendar year, Djokovic is the only men’s player since Laver to manage four major titles in a row.

Murray added: “Anyway, he already won four Grand Slams in a row, not in the same year but he did it.”

 

 

The Scot joins Djokovic’s rival Federer in hailing the world number one’s achievements in the past 12 months.

The Swiss told Eurosport: “It was also nice to see [Laver] again now at the US Open in the finals, watching Novak try to equal his Calendar Grand Slam and I think it is possible that it’s gonna happen again.

“We saw it with Novak, myself and Rafa that we come extremely close but just doing it, you know, I think you need a bit of luck.”
