Nadal and Federer equalize records

He has won a total of 20 Grand Slam titles including nine Australian Open, two French Open, six Wimbledon and three US Open. He has also won the Australian Open and French Open titles this year. In this way he has been the champion of all three Grand Slams this year.
Won the final by losing the first set
Djokovic did not have a good start in the final. He lost the first set against Baranity. At the time, it looked like Berrettini might be in trouble. However, Djokovic made full use of his experience and played the game without losing the slightest bit of patience. He lost the first set 6-7. But he did not have much trouble winning the last three sets. He won the remaining three sets 6-4, 6-4, 6-3.
Italian players in final after 45 years
For the first time in 45 years, the Italian reached the final of the Grand Slam tournament. Prior to Berrettini, Adriano Panetta was the last Italian to reach a Grand Slam final. Panetta reached the final of the French Open in 1976. The 25-year-old had earlier reached the semi-finals of the US Open in 2019 but failed to reach the final.
