Novak Djokovic sweeps aside del Potro in US Open final

14 September 2018

It was also just the latest Slam for the "Big 3" of men's tennis - Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, and Roger Federer.

The Serb now leads del Potro 15-4 in career meetings, and 5-0 in Grand Slam encounters.

Serving for the biggest win of her life as boos reverberated around the stadium, Osaka retained her poise, as she had throughout the entire match, and slammed a huge serve out wide on her first match point to win the title.

After hugging his great friend at the net, Djokovic jumped into his box to celebrate with his wife Jelena and team. We just isolated ourselves and took things from a different perspective. "But couldn't make them because Novak was there nearly every time". Each player recorded 31 winners, but del Potro committed 47 errors to Djokovic's 38.

Even taking into account all his wrist injury problems, he is certainly one of the players who would have been a multiple slam victor in another era. He was drained from 3 hours, 16 minutes trying to find weaknesses in perhaps the best defender in tennis, especially after losing the 22-point, 20-plus minute game in the second set that was the match's pivotal moment.

"I've been during all my career learning with Novak, Roger, Rafa, seeing them winning these events very often".

It was after watching Pete Sampras win Wimbledon - while sitting in his parents' pizza parlour as a six-year-old - that Djokovic decided tennis was the sport for him.

"I just feel like - as Serena said yesterday - in the closing ceremonies, Osaka deserves to have her moment".

Djokovic had tumbled down the rankings, slowed a year ago by an elbow injury and a loss of confidence that accompanied a 54-week title drought.

He owns 10 wins over world number one players - the most by anyone who has never reached the top ranking themselves.

Serbian sixth seed and Wimbledon champion Djokovic, who also had to get his career back on track following an elbow injury, said during the trophy presentation: "When I had surgery earlier this year, I could truly understand what Juan Martin went through with his surgeries that kept him away from the Tour".

"I expected, to be quite frank, after surgery that I'll be back on a high level quite fast. I actually make myself hear that, to be honest, no word of a lie".

"I really felt for her yesterday".

"I try to keep my both feet on the ground".

"He's my idol. Pete, I love you", Djokovic said". I really don't. I think men and women are treated this way or the other way depending on the situation. "I'm feeling good. My wrist is responding good, because I've been playing a lot of matches in these two weeks", Del Potro said.

"When the roof is closed, trust me, it's very, very loud down there".

"I would say last night it's unfortunate and we have to have consistency because when you look at what Serena is feeling, we watch the guys do this all the time", Adams said.

Over the last eight weeks Djokovic has resembled the Grand Slam machine that held all four major titles at the same time in 2016.
