US Open Day 14 - Medvedev poops on Djokovic's Grand Slam party


Rod Laver in 1969 is STILL the last man to complete the calendar Grand Slam after Novak Djokovic fell one match short by losing in straight sets to Daniil Medvedev in the US Open final.

Catherine and Matt talk about Djokovic's sub-par performance and the possible reasons for it, the extraordinary moment he received the support of the crowd and what that meant to him, the ways in which Medvedev played a fantastic match, and the story behind his legendary celebration.

Elsewhere, there's chat about what this defeat could mean for the future, discussion about Dylan Alcott and Diede De Groot completing their Golden Slams, a review of the women's doubles final, and final reflections on an unforgettable tournament.
