Novak Djokovic sweeps aside del Potro in US Open final

Novak Djokovic sweeps aside del Potro in US Open final

Novak Djokovic believes Juan Martin del Potro will be back on the big stage and winning grand slams after falling short in the final of the US Open on Sunday.

Amidst the searing heat and disturbing humidity of NY for the past two weeks, Djokovic battled through and rose above it all to shine under the Arthur Ashe Stadium lights for the third time.

They are also atop another important ranking: most career Grand Slam titles by a man. Federer holds the record of 20, followed by Nadal with 17, and Djokovic, who equaled Pete Sampras at 14.

He missed last year´s tournament with an elbow injury which sent his career into a mini-crisis. "She's surpassed me to become a celebrity", he said.

Despite being pegged back from 3-1 to 3-3 in the final set, he broke again for 5-3.

"I think most of all, the respect they had for other player, they never went over the line and that's something truly incredible tonight", Djokovic said at the presentation ceremony.

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

They chose to run the "Philly Special" - only this time, it was dubbed the "Philly, Philly". "It felt like the right time". Other events include a performance by Shawn Mendes, and a ticket giveaway for Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta.

He needed four sets to get past 41st-ranked Hungarian Marton Fucsovics in the first round and another to get past 61st-ranked American Tennys Sandgren in the second.

The No. 6 seed won a knotty, loud but drama-free final as the tennis world was still reeling from Saturday's controversial title match between Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka, and he won with the crowd gunning for del Potro.

For Djokovic, it was an illustration of him growing into the championships as he took his run of consecutive sets won to 14, stretching back to the second round against Tennys Sandgren. "I just want to create from this moment onwards the most I can create for myself, to get the best out of myself in every possible moment". It's a tough thing for a chair umpire to deal with. The massive forehand and punishing serve of his early years remain, the two-handed backhand has begun to reappear, along with the slice backhand del Potro introduced to reduce the stress on his wrists. At one moment, he pressed his right index finger to his lips, as if to say, "Shhhhhhh!" But Djokovic was in no mood to hang around, winning the last three games to clinch the crown.

While Streep was beside herself, Jerry Seinfeld had more of a skeptical look. Novak Djokovic (SRB) 6 455 4. I'm very sad for being a loser today.

"To support of my loved ones, my kids, my wife, my team of people that has been there with me through hard times as well".

Novak Djokovic's US Open victory has catapulted him back into the Top 3 of men's tennis.
