It's time for the Novak Djokovic vs Daniil Medvedev live stream, and we've got an interesting stat about Djokovic in Grand Slams this year. 

If he loses the first set of this US Open live stream, he is likely to win. And if he wins the first set? He never loses. That's because Djokovic's gone undefeated in the 2021 Grand Slams. And to win this one he's got to stop the man he took down in the Australian Open final.

Djokovic's last US Open match was tougher than his most recent Grand Slam tournaments, and took five sets to finish off Alexander Zverev. Yes, not only did Djoker lose the first set, but he dropped the fourth as well. This was his first five-set match (4-6, 6-2, 6-4, 4-6, 6-2) of the Open, and his toughest test. Still, he defeated the man who knocked him out of the Tokyo Olympics.  

Meanwhile, Medvedev's route was a bit cleaner, with straight-set wins in every match but his quarter-final against the unseeded Botic van de Zandschulp. His play has seemed casual throughout, and one wonders if he's just outclassed his opponents that much, or his form is that great.

Head to head, Djokovic's won five of the eight matches the two have had, with the aforementioned 2021 Australian Open being the most recent. Djokovic also beat him in the 2019 edition of that tournament.

Odds for the match are as follows:

Djokovic: -200 favorite
Zverev: +210 underdog

Djokovic being the favorite isn't a huge shock, as he won in straight sets at the Australian Open encounter. Here's how to watch Novak Djokovic vs Daniil Medvedev online:
