Switzerland tennis star Roger Federer has congratulated Novak Djokovic on winning his 20th Grand Slam title.

Minutes after the match ended, Federer sent a congratulatory tweet saying: “Congrats Novak on your 20th major. I’m proud to have the opportunity to play in a special era of tennis champions. Wonderful performance, well done!”

Djokovic also paid tribute to Federer and Nadal in his victory speech, saying “they are the two most important players" he has played in his career.

The Serbian tennis star has been unbeaten in the Grand Slams this year. He defeated Daniil Medvedev in the final of Australian Open, and Stefanos Tsitsipas for the French Open title.

With a win in US Open, he will complete a calendar slam. Djokovic also has a chance to achieve the Golden slam if he wins the singles title in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Only Steffi Graf has achieved the Golden slam so far.
