Novak Djokovic was unable to complete the calendar Grand Slam as Daniil Medvedev defeated him in straight sets to win the US Open.

Novak Djokovic had an emotional end to his US Open as he left his post-match press conference in tears after losing the final to Daniil Medvedev. The Serb came into New York looking to make history as the first man in 52 years to achieve the calendar Grand Slam, and first man in history to win a record 21st Major. He fell at the final hurdle as the world No 2 lifted his first-ever Slam trophy, and later admitted he had no plans to play in the future.

 

 

Djokovic raised question marks over his future as he revealed he didn’t know whether he’d play any upcoming tournaments.

 

 

The world No 1 was understandably devastated to have missed out on the chance to write his name in the history books by becoming the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to win the calendar Grand Slam.

 

 

The US Open title also would have seen him pull ahead from long-time rivals Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal to win the most Major titles for a male player in history, with the Big Three all currently tied on a record 20.

 

 

However, the pressure seemed too heavy for Djokovic in the final as he looked a shadow of his usual self on the court, appearing mostly flat while Medvedev fired huge serves past him and won most of the gruelling, longer rallies.

 

 

The 34-year-old was gracious in defeat as the second seed won his first-ever Grand Slam title, and fought back tears during the trophy ceremony, later admitting he was overwhelmed by the huge support he received from the crowd and using his speech to tell the fans on Arthur Ashe that he “never felt like this”.
