Novak Djokovic game-winner at US Open ironically named ‘Moderna Shot of the Day’

Novak Djokovic defeated Daniil Medvedev in straight sets to win the US Open on Sunday night. Along with his fourth victory in Flushing Meadows, he also picked up another accolade during the match.

One Djokovic play was named the “Moderna Shot of the Day.” The shot was Djokovic’s return to Medvedev, who sent his own ball into the net. The mishap clinched the win for the Serbian tennis year – the 24th Grand Slam title of his career.

Djokovic now has four US Open titles to his credit. This year, he won three of the four Grand Slam titles. He was thwarted at Wimbledon by Carlos Alcaraz.
