US Open LIVE: Novak Djokovic confirms retirement plan as Andy Murray’s mother left furious

Novak Djokovic scooped his fourth US Open title on Sunday evening, with the Serb putting Daniil Medvedev to the sword in the final at Flushing Meadows. He managed to beat his Russian opponent in straight sets to win his 24th career Grand Slam and consolidate his status as the undisputed king of men’s tennis.

It was another champion’s performance from Djokovic, with a comfortable opening set followed by a gruelling second which lasted one hour and 44 minutes. He exchanged breaks with Medvedev early in the third but went on to see out the match and secure US Open glory for the first time since 2018.

Speaking in his on-court interview, Djokovic said: “It obviously means the world to me. 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?”
