Djokovic Wins Record-Equalling 24th Grand Slam Title At US O

Novak Djokovic won a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam title with a straight-sets victory against Daniil Medvedev in Sunday's US Open final.

The Serbian won 6-3 7-6 (7-5) 6-3  to claim his fourth title in New York, making him the oldest US Open champion in the Open Era.

Djokovic got off to a perfect start in the early exchanges, racing to a 3-0 lead before showing his quality to seal the opening set in 48 minutes.

The second set hinged on a marathon, which the 36-year-old expertly snuffed out after one hour and 44 minutes.

Medvedev offered resistance again in the third set, but the veteran showed doggedness to confidently clinch another famous win.

"It obviously means the world to me," said Djokovic on winning his 24th major.

"I'm really living my childhood dream to compete at the highest level in this sport, which has given me and my family so much from difficult circumstances.

"I never thought I would be here but the last couple of years I thought I had a shot at history. Why not grab it when it is presented?"

Djokovic has now matched Australia's Margaret Court's 50-year record at the second attempt after losing the Wimbledon final to Carlos Alcaraz in July.

He will have the chance to surpass Court at the Australian Open in January 2024.
