Novak Djokovic secures his 24th Grand Slam title and equals Margaret Court’s record.

Novak Djokovic clinched his 24th Grand Slam singles title at the US Open, matching Margaret Court’s long-standing record. Djokovic endured a gruelling final against Daniil Medvedev, ultimately winning 6-3, 7-6 (7-5), 6-3 in straight sets. While the scoreline appears straightforward, it doesn’t reflect the intense battle on the court.

The match began with Djokovic taking the first set comfortably, but the real test came in the second set, which lasted a staggering one hour and 44 minutes. Both players displayed incredible determination and skill, with lengthy rallies and thrilling exchanges.

In the third set, Djokovic and Medvedev exchanged early breaks, keeping the tension high. However, Djokovic managed to regain control, securing the victory and matching Margaret Court’s historic record of 24 Grand Slam titles.

Speaking after his win, Djokovic expressed the significance of the achievement, describing it as the realisation of his childhood dream. He also acknowledged the challenges he and his family had faced over the years and reflected on how he had envisioned making history.

During the match, Djokovic appeared physically troubled, especially in the gruelling second set. Still, he showcased his resilience and greatness, ultimately winning his fourth US Open title.

Djokovic’s victory in this tournament marks his third Grand Slam win of 2023, making him the first man to achieve this feat four times. Looking ahead, Djokovic has the opportunity to surpass Margaret Court’s record at the Australian Open, an event where he has already claimed ten titles.

Despite a sense of regret for not winning the Wimbledon final earlier in the year, Djokovic emphasised his contentment and the many achievements he has to be proud of throughout his career. Winning three out of four Grand Slam titles in 2023 and reaching the Wimbledon final clearly demonstrates his exceptional tennis prowess.
