Novak Djokovic would not let Daniil Medvedev spoil his date with history a second time, battling past the Russian 6-3, 7-6 (7-5), 6-3 to win the U.S. Open on Sunday and equal Margaret Court's record haul of 24 Grand Slams.

The victory, his fourth in 10 Flushing Meadows finals, capped another remarkable Grand Slam campaign for Djokovic, who won the Australian Open and French Open before his latest triumph in the U.S.

The 36-year-old Serb, who also secured a return to the No. 1 ranking, becomes the oldest U.S. Open men’s winner in the Open Era and the first to win three Grand Slam events in a season for the fourth time.
