Novak Djokovic beats Juan Martin del Potro to win US Open title

Novak Djokovic produced a masterclass to beat world number three, Juan Martin del Potro and claim his third US Open title and 14th Grand Slam crown overall.

The 31-year-old won 6-3, 7-6(4), 6-3 to clinch his second consecutive Grand Slam title and in the process, tied great American, Pete Sampras’ haul of Grand Slam trophies.

After some tidy exchanges in the first set, Djokovic got the decisive break to go 5-3 up and then closed out the set with a hold of his. The second set was evenly contested for and then a tiebreaker ensued. But Djokovic’s quality shone through as he sealed that 7-4. The third set was akin to the first. This time, when Del Potro was broken early on, he broke back but then failed to match the Serb’s intensity and was broken decisively for 5-3. Djokovic served, and the Championship was his.

Argentine’s Del Potro, 29, was playing his first Grand Slam final since winning the 2009 US Open, having almost quit the game in 2015 because of multiple wrist injures.

“It’s not easy to speak right now,” Del Potro said. “I’m so happy to play in the final against this magnficent idol. I’m sad to lose but happy for Novak and he deserved to win.

“I never gave up during my wrist problems, I was trying to fix my injuries to be here again and I got here after nine years. I’m proud of that.”

Djokovic is now one of only eight men to win the Wimbledon-US Open double and has now accomplished that feat for a third time.

The Serb has risen to world number four and could be back to world No.1 by the end of the year.
