Novak Djokovic narrowly missed out on becoming the first male in over 50 years to complete calendar Grand Slam after being defeated 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 by Daniil Medvedev in Sunday’s 2021 US Open final.

The Serb had won 27 consecutive matches at Majors, and was just one win away from becoming the first male player in over 50 years to complete calendar Grand Slam after already winning Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon in 2021.

Following the match, Djokovic refused to commit to playing again in 2021. The 34-year-old has an entry into Indian Wells next month, before ATP Finals in November, however it is possible the world number one will skip both events.

“Let me tell you – I have no plan, absolutely nothing,” Djokovic said. “I don’t know if I’m going to play anything, anywhere… I’m just here in New York right now.”

Djokovic trailed Medvedev from start to finish in his record-equalling 31st Major final. The world number one admitted he tried everything possible to turn the match around, but was ultimately beaten by ‘the better player’.

“I think that I really tried to do everything in my power to prepare in the best possible way, to bring myself to the optimal state of body, mind, and spirit,” the Serb added. “I really don’t know what I would change, I really did my best… I simply played against a better player – who had more enthusiasm and energy.”
