How to watch, live stream the men’s final between Novak Djokovic and Daniil Medvedev
One day after Emma Raducanu made history by winning the U.S. Open women’s singles title, Novak Djokovic will try to cement his name in tennis – and sports – history.
The top-ranked men’s player will face No. 2 seed Daniil Medvedev in the men’s final, one win away from accomplishing two incredible feats.
Should he win his fourth U.S. Open and 21st career major, Djokovic would become just the second man in the Open era (since 1968) to complete the calendar-year Grand Slam following Rod Laver in 1969, and he would pass longtime rivals Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal for most Grand Slam singles titles in men’s tennis history.
Beating Medvedev, who is seeking his first career Grand Slam title, will be no easy feat, however.
Though Djokovic owns a 5-3 record against Medvedev in head-to-head meetings, including a win in the final of this year’s Australian Open, the Russian has beaten Djokovic at the ATP Finals last year as well as Masters 1000 tournaments in Cincinnati and Monte Carlo in 2019.
