Daniil Medvedev, always so “sharp”: This was his meeting with the public after winning the US Open

Daniil Medvedev did it. Although it seemed impossible to many due to Carlos Alcaraz’s season, the Russian showed all his potential and managed to hit the mark and beat the Spaniard in the semi-finals. This took him to the long-awaited final, where he will fight for the title against Novak Djokovic, who eliminated young revelation Ben Shelton.

The duel between Medvedev and Alcaraz was very even. From start to finish they gave their best. In the end, however, the Russian made the difference and won in four sets with split sets of 7-6, 6-1, 3-6 and 6-3. For this reason, after the engagement, he didn’t hesitate for a second to celebrate in a very special way, true to his style, which quickly caused a stir on social networks.

“Picante” made a gesture towards the audience, as he usually does. He also dedicated a few words to a specific sector. “The audience was incredible. The only thing is that when the score was 5:3, some Spaniards started screaming between my first and second serves. I guess they were desperate. I’m glad it didn’t help them. Now they can go to sleep peacefully,” he explained after the game.

Let’s remember that the young Spaniard was the current champion of the United States Open, which actually meant his first Grand Slam title. In 2023, he won his second such championship after winning Wimbledon and defeating Novak Djokovic in a truly great match. Now he will recover and hope to come back stronger as he will not compete in the Davis Cup in 2023.

It should be noted that the US Open final will be played at Arthur Ashe Stadium this Sunday, September 10th. The timing is still to be confirmed. The truth is that there will be no defending champions and this famous curse remains. The last person to do this was Roger Federer when he did it from 2004 to 2008, winning it five years in a row. Since then, no one has repeated twice in a row.
