Novak Djokovic powers through Alexander Zverev in five sets, to face Daniil Medvedev in US Open final

NEW YORK -- If Novak Djokovic does complete the first calendar-year Grand Slam for a man since 1969 -- and he is headed to the US Open final, just one victory away -- he, and everyone else, will remember one particularly pivotal, and epic, game along the way.

It came at the conclusion of the third set of what eventually became a 4-6, 6-2, 6-4, 4-6, 6-2 victory over Tokyo Olympics gold medalist Alexander Zverev in the semifinals at Flushing Meadows on Friday night, making Djokovic 27-0 in major championships this season.

Beating No.
