Djokovic claims 14th grand slam with another US Open title

Djokovic claims 14th grand slam with another US Open title

But del Potro not only stuck with it, he surged up to a career-high No. 3 in the rankings last month on the strength of a semifinal run at the French Open and a victory over Federer to win Indian Wells.

"But, at the same time, there was always part of me that imagined and believed and hoped that I can get back to the desired level of tennis very soon".

"Novak sometimes flies under the radar a little bit". I went hiking with my wife for five days in the French mountains.

"We just do what we can against them".

"We sat down and we just looked at the world from that perspective, breathed in the new inspiration, new motivation", he said. I thought of tennis, thought of the emotion that tennis provokes in me. It was all positives. He just has to capture the Wimbledon trophy before arriving in NY.

"It means a lot to be back in the final", added Del Potro after his sixth win over Nadal, all on hard court.

The only two players with more Grand Slam titles than him are Rafael Nadal (17) and Roger Federer (20).

By the end of September there will be no active slam-winner on the ATP Tour under the age of 30, with Del Potro and Marin Cilic both nearing landmark birthdays. For Djokovic, too. "You learn when you're down and things are not working out as you want them to", he said.

"He was my childhood idol". I know he's going to be here again with the champions trophy.

"Basically, Serena is one of the greatest players in history".

Del Potro ultimately came up short in the men's final, despite a titanic effort, as the rejuvenated Djokovic produced a masterclass to claim his 14th grand slam title. "It's truly incredible when you think about it". She appears to have been able to display her ability - even in a completely hostile atmosphere - because she was confident in her play, which has improved steadily.

Djokovic survived that one, fending off break points in the process to steel himself for a two-set lead.

Early in the tournament the extreme heat and humid conditions in NY were clearly troubling Djokovic.

Djokovic will now set his sights on conquering a different summit by reclaiming his place atop the world tennis rankings for the first time since October 2016.

The 31-year-old Serb won 6-3 7-6 (7-4) 6-3 to earn his third triumph in NY and equal American great Pete Sampras' haul of major trophies.

Novak Djokovic has won a tiebreaker to take a 95-minute second set, moving a set away from the U.S. Open title.

"When you see a friend holding the trophy, it's good". I feel like these guys, rivalries with them, matches with Federer and Nadal, have made me the player I am, have shaped me into the player I am today.

"I was playing at my limit nearly all the time, looking for winners", he said.

Osaka's winning the championship should be a great encouragement for people in Hokkaido, hit by a recent natural disaster. "So I'm glad for him".

The much-loved Argentinian could take consolation, though, from the vast support he received.

"Of course, it is a big challenge to take these kind of tournaments to them".
