NEW YORK (AP) — Novak Djokovic’s U.S. Open championship gives him 24 career Grand Slam singles titles, adding to the record he already held for the most by a man in tennis history.
Djokovic defeated Daniil Medvedev 6-3, 7-6 (5), 6-3 in the final at Flushing Meadows on Sunday.
All of Djokovic’s triumphs have come during the Open era, which began in 1968, when professional players were admitted to the sport’s four most prestigious tournaments. Margaret Court also won 24 major singles trophies — 13 in the amateur era, 11 in the Open era.
Here is a list of the women and men with the highest number of Grand Slam singles titles across the amateur and Open eras:
