The 36-year-old tennis star beat his opponent 6-3, 7-6(5), 6-3 to lift the title.

"To make the history of this sport is something truly remarkable and special," Djokovic was quoted as saying during the trophy ceremony on the US Open website.

"I never imagined that I would be here talking about 24 Slams. I never thought that would be the reality, but in the last couple of years I felt I have a chance, I have a shot at history—and why not grab it if it's presented," he said.

After a smooth first set, the arena witnessed the two players sweat it out in the second which lasted for one hour and 44 minutes.

Djokovic looked physically troubled in the second set but showcased his perfect skills to win the title.

Medvedev, who was brilliant from the baseline, continuously tested the Serb with his incredible depth and persistent power.

However, Djokovic remained in control for most of the match, giving a strong response to Medvedev's best attacks.
