Djokovic’s big day

Throughout the US Open there has been a lot of talk about those who come from behind, from the precociousness of Carlos Alcaraz, from the streak of Alexander Zverev, from the solidity of Daniil Medvedev … From a succession of the Big Three that is becoming closer and closer. But at the end of the road, he always appears, resistant to the passage of time, to punish the challengers: Novak Djokovic. In the Australian final he stopped Medvedev. At Roland Garros, Stefanos Tsitsipas. At Wimbledon, Matteo Berrettini. All of them members of the NextGen, with their knuckles already raw from banging on the door to ask for passage. Djokovic did not offer great sensations in the American tournament, as has happened this year for other Grand Slams, but at the moment of truth he always comes out number one. Here in New York, the Serb has eliminated Berrettini in the quarterfinals and Zverev in the semifinals, the latter after a huge five-set battle that ended 16 straight victories for the German, including the one he inflicted on Nole himself. At the olympic games. Djokovic always comes back.

Novak Djokovic reaches the end of the road today, a day that may become historic not only for him, but also for world sport. Nole aspires to round the Grand Slam in the same year, something that in the men’s circuit only Rod Laver has achieved in the Open Era, back in 1969. Incidentally, the Serbian would add his 21st title in a great, which would tie the tie with the two opponents of his career, the now injured Rafa Nadal and Roger Federer, to rise as the best ever. For some, like Zverev himself, it already is. The last obstacle to completing the quest is called Medvedev and he is the number two in the world, the most qualified aspirant to sour the party on fast track. History repeats itself again. Will there finally be a young man capable of stopping him?
