Djokovic Beats del Potro for Third US Open Title, 14th Major

Serbia's Novak Djokovic reacts after his win against Japan's Kei Nishikori during the Men's Singles Semi Finals match at the 2018 US Open at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York

Novak Djokovic of Serbia reacts during his USA men's singles finals against Juan Martin del Potro.

Djokovic was better than del Potro on their many lengthy exchanges, using his trademark body-twisting, limb-splaying court coverage to get to almost every ball, sneakers squeaking around the blue court in Arthur Ashe Stadium, where the roof was closed because of rain.

With his third championship at Flushing Meadows, Djokovic matched Pete Sampras for third on the career list for Grand Slam titles. Nadal, Federer and Djokovic last occupied the top three spots in the rankings in April 2015.

Del Potro - the 2009 champion back for a second slam final after overcoming career-threatening wrist injuries - threw everything he had at his rival, but Djokovic absorbed the Argentinian's power superbly, his returning of serve particularly outstanding.

Aaron Rodgers Injury: Packers QB Gives Update Before Week 2 Vs. Vikings
Barring any setbacks throughout the week, it's hard to imagine a scenario in which Rodgers doesn't get the start on Sunday. He also had a cleanup procedure on the knee a few years ago by the Packers team doctor.


Djokovic broke del Potro early in the set to take a commanding position, but del Potro later broke him back and looked on the verge of taking full control of the match's momentum.

He was soon 3-1 up in the second set before Potro carved out his first break point of the match to level at 3-3.

Del Potro - the third seed - had earlier lauded Djokovic, telling ESPN: "So happy to play in the final against this magnificent idol".

And the next time we all get together will be at the Australian Open, the tournament he has made his own. However, unlike Saturday night, this match remained all about tennis and the brute quality that the two players put on the court. "I was a kid then; now I am much older", Del Potro added. "I was trying to fix all my injuries to be here once again and I got here after nine years, which is unbelievable for me because the US Open is my favourite tournament".

Ashleigh Barty and CoCo Vandeweghe have won the U.S. Open women's doubles final, beating Timea Babos and Kristina Mladenovic 3-6, 7-6, 7-6 at Arthur Ashe Stadium. They hadn't even dropped a set over that run until Babos and Mladenovic got them in the first set on Sunday.

"I've been during all my career learning with Novak, Roger, Rafa, seeing them winning these events very often. I was looking for winners with my forehand, backhand, but I couldn't make it, because Novak was there every time".

"He will be the favourite to win on Sunday", Del Potro said. He recouped the service break in the fifth game, but after holding serve, Djokovic went onto win the final three games of the over three-hour encounter. "But for me, I felt like I really had to focus during this match because she's such a great champion, and I know that she can come back from any point".

Another US Open title would move the 31-year-old into a tie with John McEnroe for fourth, behind only Sampras, Federer and Jimmy Connors.

There's a new accelerometer and gyroscope inside the Apple Watch Series 4 , too, which can help the device to detect falls. According to Apple, the watch faces are created to interact with the screen with features that bounce off the sides.


"He's already the only one to have held all of the Grand Slams simultaneously and it would not surprise me if he goes into next year's French Open with the chance to emulate that feat". Barty and Vandeweghe won the second set tiebreaker 7-2 and won the third 8-6 to win for the second time in four meetings this season against Babos and Mladenovic.
