US Open: Daniil Medvedev denies Carlos Alcaraz to set up final against Novak Djokovic in New York | Tennis News

Daniil Medvedev ended Carlos Alcaraz’s reign as the US Open champion after a stunning 7-6 (7-3) 6-1 3-6 6-3 victory to set up a final against Novak Djokovic.

A final on Sunday will not be the next chapter in tennis’s hottest rivalry of Djokovic and Alcaraz that has had the sporting world buzzing.

However, there will be some juicy subplots with the 36-year-old hunting a fourth US Open that would see him equal Margaret Court’s record haul of 24 Grand Slams and, along with it, a good measure of revenge on Medvedev who spanked him in straight-sets here two years ago to deny the Serb a rare calendar Grand Slam.

Medvedev said he knew he had to play better than himself to defeat Alcaraz and feels he’ll need to do it again against Djokovic

“The challenge is that you play a guy that won 23 Grand Slams, and I have only one,” Medvedev said, looking ahead to taking on Djokovic.

“When I beat him here, I managed to play better than myself, so I need to do it again. There is no other way.”
