Novak Djokovic, in search of his 24th Grand Slam title snatched the first set 6-3 against Daniil Medvedev in the U.S. Open men’s final.
Djokovic started quickly breaking Medvedev’s serve in the second game en route to a 3-0 lead.
Their meeting Sunday is a rematch of the 2021 final in Flushing Meadows.
Medvedev won in straight sets that day for his lone Grand Slam title, denying Djokovic what would have been the first calendar-year Grand Slam in men’s tennis since 1969.
The match is being played with the roof closed at Arthur Ashe Stadium because of the potential for more bad weather.
