Daniil Medvedev has risen with a memorable triumph in the US Open 2021 And he has done it in the best possible way: by beating the number 1 in the world. It is never an easy challenge to win the best player on the planet in the final of a Grand Slam and proof of this is that only 6 active players have been able to achieve it: Rafael Nadal (7 wins out of 12 duels), Novak Djokovic (1 single win in 4 matches), Andy Murray (1 of 6), Medvedev himself (1 of 2), Juan Martin del Potro (1 of 1) and Stan wawrinka, the most efficient having achieved his three Grand Slam titles against the world number 1 at the time. It is striking that Roger Federer never have been able to achieve it, having lost in the 5 finals in which the best in the world was measured.
del Potro in the mix as well 1 of 1 https://t.co/2oZvUnO9BW
