Novak Djokovic left one of the moments of the US Open final. When defeat was close, with Medvedev two sets up and leading in the third, the Serb broke down in tears at half-time. He ended up falling by a triple 6-4 and was enormously grateful to the public gathered at Arthur Ashe in New York, according to the cause of his tears.
“I have thought about both scenarios and what I would be saying here today. I want to say that although I lost this final my heart is full of joy for how you have treated me,” said Nole. “I’ve never felt like this. I love you. Thank you so much for what you have done for me.”, added the Balkan, who also had compliments for Medvedev, reciprocated later: “He has had an incredible match and tournament. If there is someone who deserved to win a Grand Slam, it is him. He will surely do it more times in the future.”
