Djokovic had an emotional end to his US Open as he left his post-match press conference in tears after losing the final to Daniil Medvedev.

The 23-time Grand Slam champion pulled out along with sister Venus Williams and last year’s Australian Open winner Sofia Kenin. The former world No 1 has not played since retiring injured in her first round match at Wimbledon, where she slipped on the grass and hurt her leg.

After winning Wimbledon, the third major of the year, the 34-year-old lost in the bronze medal match to Pablo Carreno Busta at the Tokyo Olympics before pulling out of the mixed doubles citing a shoulder issue.

Djokovic defeated Jan-Lennard Struff of Germany 6-4, 6-3 in the men’s singles, while aiming to become the first man to win all four Grand Slam titles and Olympic gold in the same year.
