Medvedev vs Djokovic preview

As the last Grand Slam match of the tennis calendar, the men's US Open final is seen as the beginning of the end of the season and the epic contest between Daniil Medvedev vs Novak Djokovic promises to be no different. The pair contested the 2021 final, won by Medvedev as Djokovic just needed victory at Flushing Meadows to win the calendar slam. Now, the Serb chases a record-equaling 24th major. The Russian couldn't spoil the party again, could he?

Medvedev's four-set defeat of world number one and reigning Wimbledon and US Open champion Carlos Alcaraz in the Friday night's semi-final will go down as one of the finest performances ever on Arthur Ashe Stadium. The Russian's 7-6 6-1 3-6 6-3 victory was testament to his ability to absorb the bludgeoning pace coming at him and send it back with interest. The 27-year-old was aggressive, served well, went for the up-and-coming king and very much hit to reach a third final in New York.

Flushing Meadows seems to bring the best out of Medvedev. He feeds on the crowd's energy and uses his own occasionally spiky nature to involve them in his own contests.

Djokovic, meanwhile, is again chasing a share of Margaret Court's all-time record of 24 Grand Slam singles titles in victory. The Serb had to fight to get over the line against precocious home youngster Ben Shelton in his semi-final but the straight sets wins never really looked in doubt after his persistent, resilient best took the first set.

This will be the 36-year-old's 36th major final – half of every Slam he's ever entered – while that win over Shelton took his record against opponents playing in a home Slam to 30 victories and just one defeat, in the 2013 Wimbledon final to Andy Murray.

Djokovic is a physical freak whose powers of recovery within matches – both mental and physical – have provided his enduring greatness at the top of the sport for more than a decade. It's his 10th final at Flushing Meadows. The guy knows what he's doing.
