After losing to Daniil Medvedev on September 12, Djokovic admitted to being under psychological pressure while pursuing the record of 21 Grand Slams.

`I feel relieved that everything is over, after many months of psychological repression,` Djokovic expressed after the US Open final.

Djokovic won 44 and lost six matches this season.

Djokovic still showed his bravery in New York, with five wins after losing the first set.

At the Australian Open, Djokovic easily beat Medvedev in the final but faced many difficulties when playing Alexander Zverev in the quarterfinals.

Since Federer first won the Grand Slam at Wimbledon 2003, the `Big 3` have won 60 out of 72 Grand Slams.

Unlike the women’s singles, where low-ranked players often surprise at the Grand Slam, it is very difficult for young male talents to win when the `Big 3` are present.

Djokovic’s position on hard courts will be threatened next season, when he turns 35, with the pressure of monopolizing the record of 21 Grand Slams and the physical risks.

`2022 could be a turning point season marking the transition of generations. There will be more opportunities for young players,` legendary Boris Becker commented after the US Open final.
