Djokovic Defeats Medvedev For US Open Title, 24th Major

Serbian claims fourth trophy in New York
Novak Djokovic has made history again. 
Two years after suffering a stunning upset to Daniil Medvedev in the final at Flushing Meadows, the Serbian defeated the 27-year-old 6-3, 7-6(5), 6-3 inside Arthur Ashe Stadium for his 24th major title, tying Margaret Court for the most Grand Slam singles trophies in tennis history.
“To make history of this sport is just something truly remarkable and special,” Djokovic said during the trophy ceremony. “Obviously in every in every possible way, in every possible meaning of the word special. It’s hard to describe in words. I had the childhood dream when I was seven, eight. I wanted to become the best player in the world and win the Wimbledon trophy. That was the only thing I wanted.
“But then when I realised that, obviously I started to dream new dreams and set new objectives, new goals. I never imagined that I would be here standing with you talking about 24 Slams.”
