The best tennis player in the world, Novak Djokovic, stated that he will play the finals of the US Open as if it were the last match in his career.
Djokovic defeated German Alexander Zverev 4: 6, 6: 2, 6: 4, 4: 6, 6: 2 in the semifinals in New York, and for the record of the 21st Grand Slam title, his rival will be Russian Danil Medvedev.
– I will play the next match and watch it as if it is the last in my career. I will give my heart, soul, body, my head, everything to win – said Djokovic after the match.
He thanked the fans for the amazing atmosphere.
– These are the moments we live for, the unique opportunities we dream about every day. I knew it was going to be a big fight. Zverev is a great champion. He is a great guy and an even better player – said Djokovic.
On Sunday, the Serb will try to achieve another victory, which separates him from the calendar Grand Slam, which was last won by Rod Laver in 1969.
This will be his ninth final of the US Open, the first since 2018, and he will try to win the fourth trophy in New York.
On Sunday, Djokovic will play for the 31st time in the final of a slam, which equaled the record of the Swiss Roger Federer.
