On the hard-courts of the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center (Flushing Meadows, New York), the matches of the highly anticipated US Open 2021 are being played, the last Grand Slam of the season, during which there will be the absences of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Serena Williams.
Novak Djokovic is one step away from history, after winning in 5 sets against Alexander Zverev in the semifinal of the US Open 2021. Even in the era of the three phenomena that have engulfed any tournament and precluded all hope from all others, no one had ever been so close from the dream called Grand Slam.
The Serbian is now where he hoped to be: only Daniil Medvedev separates him from the perfect year, without blemish or defeat. Sascha Zverev gives up with honor, one who in the second half of 2021 reconciled with himself by becoming a fantastic player (on the court, let's leave out all the ousite problems).
Djokovic wins with a score of 4-6, 6-2, 6-4, 4-6, 6-2 in 3h38m. Below the highlights of the semifinal between Novak Djokovic and Alexander Zverev.
