How to watch Djokovic vs Medvedev live stream and the 2021 US Open Men’s tennis final online and on TV

The lights are on at the Arthur Ashe Stadium and the stage is set for the US Open Men’s Final at Flushing Meadows. Novak Djokovic has a full house of Grand Slam titles in his sites. He faces Russia’s Daniil Medvedev in the final. Coverage begins at 9pm BST. Make sure you know how to watch a Djokovic vs Medvedev live stream from anywhere in the world.

Djokovic is the world number one, while Medvedev is number two, so it promises to be a real battle of the heavyweights (in sharp contrast to the ladies’ final, where both players were unseeded).

The 141st US Open has been hotly anticipated for Novak Djokovic. He has already won Wimbledon, the Australian Open and the French Open this year – securing the US Open title would make it his first ever complete Grand Slam. That would also make him the first player in the modern era to win all four tournaments in one year since Rod Laver in 1969.

It would be yet another entry in the history books for the Serbian. He already has 85 singles titles to his name, three of them the US Open, and six of them Wimbledon titles. This year, he’s been on thrilling form, with his record so far standing at an impressive 38 matches won and just five lost. He’ll be hoping to notch up another win on Sunday.

Standing in his way is Daniil Medvedev. The world number two has youth on his side – at 25 years old, he’s nine years Djokovic’s junior, though the flip side of that is that relatively speaking, he’s less experienced. Though he’s anything but a beginner – he’s already picked up 12 singles titles, including the US Open in 2017, and has a track record of 40 wins and 10 losses so far for 2021.

Can he stop the seemingly inevitable dominance of Djokovic? The final promises to be an East Coast thriller.

Watch Djokovic vs Medvedev live stream from abroad using a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant 2021 US Open rights holders, you won’t be able to access them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. VPNs are a doddle to use and create a private connection between your device and the internet. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you’re not happy with the service any time within the first 30 days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.
