There was a fittingly dramatic end to a wild US Open.
Daniil Medvedev ended Novak Djokovic’s quest for history – for now – by securing his maiden grand slam title in New York.
But he succumbed to the pressure and fell at the last hurdle, with 25-year-old Russian Medvedev winning 6-4 6-4 6-4.

Alcott gets the beers in
Australia’s Dylan Alcott is one of the game’s great characters and he fully seized his moment in the stands on Arthur Ashe after completing the Golden Slam in the wheelchair quad singles.
Battle of the generations
Australia’s Sam Stosur celebrated the 10th anniversary of her singles title in New York by winning the women’s doubles alongside China’s Zhang Shuai. The pair’s combined age of 69 was 33 years more than that of their opponents – teenagers Coco Gauff and Caty McNally who were bidding for a first slam title.
