Novak Djokovic’s default against Pablo Carreno Busta at 5-6 in the first set ensured that men’s tennis would have a new grand slam winner for the first time since Marin Cilic in New York in 2014.

And that winner will become the first to be born in the 1990s. Finally, some might be saying.

In his coaching career spanning 30 years, Brad Stine hasn’t seen a draw nearing the finish line of a major as wide open.

Not only has Djokovic departed — the Serbian world No. 1 was unbeaten in 2020 prior to Sunday’s remarkable events — but the other two members of the “Big Three,” Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, didn’t make the trip to New York in the first place. Nor did three-time grand slam winner Stan Wawrinka.
