Medvedev wins US Open title, denying Djokovic Slam
Daniil Medvedev delivered a performance for the ages in the US Open final to claim his first major singles title over Novak Djokovic, who was attempting to win the Grand Slam.
Novak Djokovic was aiming for a historical milestone that would have placed him high atop the men’s tennis pantheon on Sunday in Arthur Ashe Stadium. The 20-time major champion was seeking, in one fell swoop, to become the first male winner of the Grand Slam since the great Rod Laver in 1969 and to pass legends Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal on the all-time Grand Slam titles list.
Enter Daniil Medvedev, a menacing Russian with other ideas…
The No. 2 seed delivered a performance for the ages, blasting out of the gates and seizing on every opportunity as he notched a stirring 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 victory to claim his maiden Grand Slam title.
Alexander Zverev advancing to the Quarter Finals of the 2021 US Open in Flushing Meadow. Italian tennis shooting star Yannik Sinner from South-Tirol demonstrated his excellent form but had to accept a narrow three-set defeat against Zverev in the round of the last 16 (6:4, 6:4, 7:6).
After having won the Tokyo Olympic tennis tournament German tennis giant Alexander Zverev adds one more title by smashing Andrej Rublev in two straight sets 6:2, 6:3 in the final of the Cincinatti Masters in Ohio, USA. It is Zverevs first victory of the tournament and comes as a surprise because his experience with this tournament is a special one: Zverev had not won a single match in the last seven years when he always got eliminated in the first round.
Belinda Bencic from Switzerland crowned Champion of the Olympic Games in Tokyo 2021 after a 2,5h three-set 7:5, 2:6, 6:3 fight against Marketa Vondrousova from the Czech Republic. It is the third gold medal for the Swiss team in Tokyo.
