Bengalauru, September 13: Daniiel Medvedev stunned Novak Djokovic in straight sets to win his first career Grand Slam a day after history-making Emma Raducanu defeated Leylah Fernandez for her first Grand Slam title at the Flushing Meadows.
On Sunday (September 12), second seed Medvedev shattered top seed Djokovic's calendar slam dreams with a 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 win in the men's singles final.
Djokovic, who had won the Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon earlier this year, was on course for a career golden slam, but rising stars had other ideas at the Olympics and the US Open.
First up, fourth seeded German Alexander Zverev ousted the Serbian in the semifinals at Tokyo Olympics last month before Russia's Medvedev, who had lost to him in two grand slam finals at the Australian Open, eased to victory at the Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York.
Earlier on Saturday (September 11) in the women's singles final, Brit teenager Raducanu, who became the first qualifier to win a grand slam title, beat fellow teenager Fernandez 6-4, 6-3 in straight games.
In fact, the 18-year-old from Bromley never dropped a set throughout her US Open 2021 run and went on to lift her first grand slam title in her second ever major appearance.
In the doubles events, USA's Rajeev Ram and Great Britain's Joe Sailsbury came from a set down to defeat Great Britain's Jamie Murray and Brazil's Bruno Soares 3-6, 6-2, 6-2 in the men's doubles finals.
Meanwhile, Australia's Samantha Stosur and Zhang Shuai of China defeated USA pair Coco Gauff and Caty McNally 6-3, 3-6, 6-3 in the women's doubles finals.
Sailsbury won his second title at US Open 2021, teaming up with USA's Desirae Krawczyk in the mixed doubles finals against Mexico's Giuliana Olmos and El Salvador Marcelo Arevalo.
