Well, after a prolonged ovation that again brings a smile and some tears. “I would like to start off by saying congratulations to Daniil. Amazing, amazing match. If there is anyone that deserves a grand slam title right now, it is you. ... I wish you many more grand slams and many more majors to follow.” Medvedev, emotionless to this point, looks moved. Djokovic sniffs a bit as he says he visualized himself standing here in both scenarios. “My heart is filled with joy and I’m the happiest man alive because you guys made me feel very special on the court.” Updated at 18.50 EDT 18.47 EDT Trophy presentation with all the dignitaries and sponsors, along with legend Stan Smith. ESPN’s Chris McKendry does the honor ... I mean, welcomes two 12-year-old Americans to carry trophies to the podium. Tournament referee and umpire are thanked. When can we do that in youth soccer? The next speaker congratulates Medvedev and says he’s thrilled that Medvedev won his first major in New York. He then congratulates Djokovic, who bows his head and smiles grimly.
