The 2021 US Open main draw runs from August 30 - September 12 in New York City at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. The tournament takes place for the 141st time and is the fourth and final Grand Slam of the year. Dominic Thiem is the men’s singles defending champion but has withdrawn following an injury. Naomi Osaka is the women’s singles defending champion and will be aiming to claim the title for the third time in four years. Meanwhile, No. 1 seed Novak Djokovic looks to complete the calendar Grand Slam after winning the Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon already this year. Should the Serbian lift the title here for the fifth time, he will also overtake Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal to become the first-ever man to win 21 Grand Slam singles titles. With full capacity crowds back again, it’s time for the greatest return!

Lacoste has sponsored number one and number two in the world. What a great marketing.

Tough match for the crowd in the USA:
They don't like Djokovic, and Daniil is Russian.
One thing is for sure. A Slav will be a champion.

i wish novak gets this one, after that i wo'nt have any issues if he does'nt win any other tournament because this is the history which is once in a century thing and this will cement novak's legacy in generations.
Hope Med can handle the another level of tennis because his draw was more like a 250 event

I hope Novak wins but I like Med a lot. I hope he wins a slam…next year.
Djokovic had the much harder route to get here. Plus the pressure. But no excuses. Everything will be left out on the court.

Medvedev played like an alien from another planet in the first two sets. Congratulations Medvedev, if there's one player who deserved to dethroned the GOAT it had to be you. A special achievement!

The next hardest thing in tennis to beating Nadal at RG (twice) is winning the calendar Slam. Let's go Novak, let's go!
Love them both!! I'm definitely torn between the two. But as much as I want Daniil to win his first grand slam because I sincerely believe he deserves it, I think it will break my heart more if Novak doesn't win this because I believe that he is the GOAT.

Didnt watch the tournament but having to beat nishikori, berreteni, zverev and medvedev for the trophy is pretty hard draft. Only missing is tsitsipas.
i feel so excited that i will be witnessing history tomorrow 🏃‍♀️
Congrats Daniil Medvedev, US Open 2021 champion! Hope to see you win many more GS titles.

I know there are people out there who do not appreciate Medvedev's game style. But you must admit, this guy can beat any top player even if in their prime, his ability to use such a high IQ to play every point tactically and keep focusing is just unreal. He doesn't get enough praise. He is a genius no doubt!

I have been Fedal fan for 15 years now and I've always seen Djoko as an enemy and despised his behaviour, playing style and shenanigans on court, but this time I'm rooting for him in this match, he is a fighter and he really deserves this Grand Slam, hope he can do it tonight. It would be something extraordinary.

It’s breathtaking!! I’m even afraid to watch to get too nervous, because I want them both to get the Slam this time)))
Djokovic in 3/4 unfortunately. The next gen’s all court games are not comparable to the big 3. Theyre great players but theyre still beneath the big 3.
Joel Joseph
Joel Joseph:
I have a feeling that the key shot is going to be Djokovic's short slice and drop shot. Force Medvedev to come to the net and get him out of his comfort zone.

For the history of the sport I’d like the big three to stay tied at 20 majors each.

Now look at the US Open 2021 men's tournament grid and understand who has killed the sharks on his way to the final and who has caught small fish.
The most unbalanced grid in the GS history.

My two fave tennis players! I want Novak make another record in tennis hustory! Goodluck to both of them!

If Novak win's US Open he will be my undisputed GOAT.

Danil said he hoped to be a little bit better than the last two times, well, that's not enough to flip the prospect from losing straight sets in Australia earlier this year

Praying for Novak🙏you can do this boss, make the history tonight.
Happy Medvedev blocked Djokovic GOAT claim. A Jr and early in his professional career, Djokovic often won his matches having called a medical time out when his opponents ramped up their game and put him on the ropes. GOATs Roger and Rafa NEVER did that as pros ; even played through their difficulty. Djokovic might get the title wins but he's NO Champion for that reason! Congrats Daniil.
Now this is real tennis, numbers 1 and 2 in the final. The ATP rocks.
Go Novak Djokovic !!!
Hopefully Daniel brings more than he did at the Australian final

Djokovic in 3/4 to make history. Let's all cheer for this achievement cause you will witness this feat probably only once in your lifetime.

Smashed his racket in a temper tantrum yet again, and he wonders why nobody likes him.
Well done Danill Medvedev for dismantling him in straight sets and winning a grand slam.
Commentary i was watching were making excuses for djokovich instead of praising Medvedev.

Anyhow it should be great battle, I hope for this)
May the best man win. I like both players, both deserve to win. Yes, Medvedev's draw was easier, but how is it his fault? He could have easily met with Stefanos in the semifinal, had he not lost to Alcaraz. It is dumb to think that he is taking it for granted, this could be history for him as well not just Djokovic. Novak has more at stake and of course everybody wants to witness this moment.

Please lets be respectful to both players as each one has his own path that he had to go through to get to the final. It is not only about draws.

Fleshing meadow surface is not "too hard " for medvedev compared to that of Rod laver arena....But if you are not consistent in your game the world no 1 will destabilize you and cause sufficient "damage " as he had done to Nadal in the Semis of RG 2021.....

Medvedev's birthday is 152 days away. Djokovic has 152 career outdoor losses. Djokovic can improve to (20 - 2) on hard court this year as well
Skull and Bones = 202 (RO). Can go a perfect (28 - 0) at grand slams this year
28 is a perfect number. Medvedev can pick up his 62nd career hard court loss
The primary DN is 62
(9) + (12) + (20) + (21) = 62. Novak Djokovic = 152 (EO). Novak winning it

In case Djokovic wins the Gregorian calendar GS4C, will he be required to do the same, for example, according to the Chinese or Jewish or Indian or Mayan calendar?

21 slams is proving the most difficult for the 3 Amigo's.First Federer had 2 match points at Wimbledon,Then Nadal got the pressure in Paris and now Djorkvic feels the pressure in the US.
