Novak Djokovic still has his Grand Slam chance.
Pushed to a fifth set by Alexander Zverev, the top-seeded Djokovic won it 6-2 to advance to Sunday’s U.S. Open final.
Djokovic will play No. 2 seed Daniil Medvedev, with a victory making him the first man to win all four major tournaments in the same year since Rod Laver in 1969.
He broke Zverev’s serve all three times in the final set after the No. 4 seed had won the fourth to even the match.
