In the final of the 2021 US Open final, Novak Djokovic is set to play against Daniil Medvedev from Russia. 

Novak Djokovic won an epic semifinal clash where he defeated Alexander Zverev in 5 sets. It was a close match but Djokovic showed his class in vital parts of the match which allowed the Serbian superstar to reach another Grand Slam final. This is perhaps the biggest match in the career of Novak Djokovic as winning the US Open will result in him winning all 4 Grand Slam titles in one calendar year the first time. Furthermore, a win here will see Djokovic go past Nadal and Federer and become the first player to win 21 Grand Slam titles. That being said, this will be a challenging match for Djokovic since Medvedev is a very strong player. 

Looking at Daniil Medvedev, the Russian superstar always seems to perform at this stage of the season. It has been a very strong tournament for Daniil Medvedev as he has only lost 1 set in the entire competition. Daniil Medvedev enters this match having won his previous outing in straight sets. It was a comfortable win for Medvedev as he won 5 return games while only losing 1 service game in the entire match. With all that being said, Medvedev is yet to play the class of Djokovic in this tournament meaning this will be the Russian’s biggest test of the tournament. 

Daniil Medvedev and Novak Djokovic have played each other 8 times in the past with Djokovic winning on 5 occasions and Medvedev winning 3 times. The most recent match between these two players was earlier in the season at the Australian Open where Djokovic won.
