US Open 2021: How to watch today's Djokovic-Medvedev match without cable

You can watch Novak Djokovic try to cement his legacy when he plays Daniil Medvedev in the men's final on Sunday, no cable subscription required.

After an epic women's singles final where 18-year-old Emma Raducanu defeated 19-year-old Leylah Fernandez -- and saw Raducanu become the first player ever to survive the qualifying tournament and win a Grand Slam title -- the men's singles final today could be nearly as historic. With a win today, No. 1 Novak Djokovic could become the first player since Steffi Graf in 1988 and the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to win the Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon and US Open in the same calendar year. Djokovic would also move ahead of rivals Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal for career Grand Slam titles: The three are sitting at 20 apiece; Federer and Nadal skipped the tournament due to injuries.

Djokovic's opponent is the second-ranked player in the world, Daniil Medvedev of Russia. He enters the final in top form, dropping only one set in the tournament so far. The two played in the Australian Open final earlier this year, where Djokovic won in straight sets. 

The US Open Men's Final is set to start at 1 p.m. PT (4 p.m. ET) on Sunday on ESPN.
