Novak Djokovic is a human, like all of us. One step away from the Grand Slam, history and glory, Nole succumbed to the pressure and blows of a phenomenon called Daniil Medvedev. Djokovic’s tears at the end of the third set, the one that will put an end to the Grand Slam dream, should make skeptics think again, those who limit the world of sport to a number, a rivalry and a passion that should never lead to hatred.
Novak Djokovic let himself go to a liberating cry, which for the first time smacks of victory and not defeat, but few will really understand the real value of the little things: those that make the difference at the end of the day.

“I start saying: congratulations Daniil. Wonderful game, wonderful tournament. Nobody like you deserved to win a Grand Slam tournament right now. Congratulations to your team, we have a great relationship and I wish you to win more Grand Slam tournaments,” said Djokovic during the final awards ceremony.
“I’m sure you will be on this stage many more times in the future. Before the game, I thought about what I would say after the game, even in the event of a defeat. My heart is full of joy because you made me feel special on the tennis court. You have touched my soul, I have never felt like this in New York, thank you for encouraging me and we will see you again soon.”
