With victory in the US Open final against Daniil Medvedev, Novak Djokovic will bask in the rarest of air in the tennis world.

SUMMARY: US Open final is on SBS, so you can watch on free-to-air TV. You can also watch on Foxtel or for no cost along with 50 additional sports on Kayo Sports with this 14-day free trial.

While Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal were the dominant forces in men's tennis for much of this millennium, Novak Djokovic is on the cusp of 2 achievements that evaded that dynamic duo.

If Djokovic can overcome Daniil Medvedev in the US Open final, he will secure the first men's calendar Grand Slam of all 4 tournaments since Rod Laver way back in 1969. The last player to achieve the feat was German great Steffi Graf in 1988.

It would also take the Serb to 21 career major titles, separating him from contemporaries Federer and Nadal, who are locked with Djokovic on 20. This is how to watch.

Who will win US Open final?

It would take a brave pundit to bet against Novak Djokovic putting down a new marker in the men's game and joining Budge and Laver as Grand Slam winners. Another win here would also move him closer to the all-time major title mark in the sport, the 24 won by Margaret Court, ahead of Serena Williams (23).

Medvedev has dropped just 1 set in the tournament so far and has been steadily building his game. He has lost grand slam finals at the 2019 US Open and this year's Australian Open and looks destined to become a major champion. Djokovic, meanwhile, had lost 4 sets in total prior to dropping another 2 in his 5-set epic against Alexander Zverev in the semi-final.

The 25-year-old Medvedev could definitely play party pooper and we give him a shot at upsetting Djokovic. But the Serb's exceptional poise and temperament in the big points give him the edge as he stares down tennis immortality.
