Novak Djokovic made it three Grand Slams out of three for 2021 at Wimbledon on Sunday and has already set his eyes firmly on completing the set at the US Open.

Djokovic is 4/6 to triumph at Flushing Meadows after claiming his sixth SW19 triumph in four sets against Italian Matteo Berrettini, while he could also complete the "golden slam" with success at the Olympics.

Danniil Medvedev is 4/1 to win the final Grand Slam of the year while Rafael Nadal is available at 100/1.

The Serbian has equalled Nadal and Roger Federer's tally of 20 slams but admitted he had a battle on his hands after losing the first set on a tie-break.

However, he recovered well and claimed a 6-7 6-4 6-4 6-3 success.

Djokovic paid tribute to his 25-year-old opponent, who is ranked ninth in the world and was playing in his first Grand Slam final.

He said: "It was more than a battle. It was a tough match and I know it is not the best feeling losing a final but Matteo has got a huge career ahead of him and this is just the beginning.

"Winning Wimbledon was always a dream of mine when I was a kid and I will never take this sort of win for granted. To win for a sixth time is incredible.

"The last ten years have been an incredible journey and it is not going to stop here.

"I am playing well and playing my best tennis is the highest priority I have right now. Let's see if we can keep it going."
