Novak Djokovic Makes Tennis History: 24th Grand Slam Triumph at the 2023 US Open

Novak Djokovic once again demonstrated why he’s considered one of the greatest tennis players in history. The Serbian superstar clinched his 24th Grand Slam title by defeating Daniil Medvedev 6-3, 7-6(5), 6-3 inside Arthur Ashe Stadium on Sunday, September 10, 2023, equaling Margaret Court’s record for the most Grand Slam singles trophies.

After securing this historic victory, Djokovic expressed his excitement, saying, “To make history in this sport is truly remarkable and special. I had a childhood dream to become the best player in the world and win Wimbledon, but I never imagined standing here discussing 24 Grand Slams.”

With this win, Djokovic also reclaimed his number one ranking, amassing 11,795 points, a substantial lead of 3,000 points over the second-placed Alcaraz, whose title defense ended in the semifinals. While Daniil Medvedev gained 1,020 points, he remained in third place. Additionally, Stefanos Tsitsipas and Andrey Rublev climbed two spots to 5th and 6th in the rankings, respectively.

Notably, Djokovic achieved a remarkable feat by becoming the first player to win three Grand Slams in a single year for the third time and became the oldest person in the Open Era to win the US Open.
