On Sunday, Djokovic took down Daniil Medvedev in straight sets to win his 24th major title, the Open era record for Grand Slam victories. Djokovic’s dominance suggests that he’s more than capable of adding to that number over the remainder of his career.
A parade of notables gave him props for his historic achievement.

Well done again Novak, I’m sure 24 feels as great as one, especially when you have fought so hard to get where you are and to stay there against a growing tide of challengers. You were on high alert tonight against a quality player in Daniil. Take another bow, champ! 🚀

On Saturday, Gauff engineered a comeback from an early deficit against Aryna Sabalenka to take a 2-6, 6-3, 6-2 victory. It’s the 19-year-old American’s first major win and breaks a streak of 13 majors without a champion from the United States.
After the match, celebrities from the sports world and beyond congratulated Gauff on her victory.
Inspirational win @CocoGauff 🎉,
