Sumary of Tennis immortality beckons Djokovic:

  • NEW YORK: If Novak Djokovic does complete the first calendar-year Grand Slam for a man since 1969 – and he is headed to the US Open final, just one victory away – he, and everyone else, will remember one particularly pivotal, and epic, game along the way.
  • It came at the conclusion of the third set of what eventually became a 4-6, 6-2, 6-4, 4-6, 6-2 victory over Tokyo Olympics gold medalist Alexander Zverev in the semifinals at Flushing Meadows on Friday (Saturday in Manila), making Djokovic 27-0 in major championships this season.
  • “That key game against Zverev featured one extended exchange after another, including a 53-shot, minute-plus point that was the longest of the tournament and actually was lost by Djokovic.
  • Zverev delivered a forehand winner, then hunched over with his hands on his knees.
  • As usual, he used his superb returning and never-take-a-rest defense to wear down Zverev.
  • Just as he had lost the first set about 1 1/2 hours earlier but turned things around, with the help of a dip in level from the fourth-seeded Zverev.
  • It will be Slam final No. 3 for Medvedev, a 25-year-old from Russia, who eliminated 12th-seeded Felix Auger-Aliassime of Canada 6-4, 7-5, 6-2 in the afternoon.
