Djokovic finds secret to Grand Slam success in French Alps
Djokovic finds secret to Grand Slam success in French Alps
Novak Djokovic Wins the U.S. Open
13 September, 2018, 05:16
Djokovic, patient and strong through two punishing weeks, became a three-time U.S. Open victor and 14-time Grand Slam champion with his 6-3, 7-6 (4) 6-3 victory over del Potro under the roof at Arthur Ashe Stadium.
The American has since received backing from the WTA and now Djokovic, who beat Del Potro 6-3 7-6 6-3, has weighed in with his thoughts on the controversial argument.
An eight-time finalist in NY who had only previously lifted the trophy in 2011 and 2015, the Serbian was made to work hard on Sunday as Del Potro came from a break down in the second and third sets.
That left Djokovic, who missed the U.S. Open previous year because of a right elbow injury, as the last man standing to defend the "Big Four's" title streak against a man who had broken it once before.
Del Potro, the 2009 U.S. Open champion, remains with that lone major title.
"But I have my personal opinion that maybe the chair umpire should not have pushed Serena to the limit, especially in a Grand Slam final".
After winning the first set 6-3, Djokovic was leading 3-2 in the second set (having broken Del Potro) and was serving to extend his lead to 4-2.
Djokovic has now entered the top three of the list of most Grand Slam titles in men's singles tennis history, tied at the third sport with Pete Sampras. He was barking at himself, at his entourage, at a crowd vocally supporting his opponent, Juan Martin del Potro.
"If you told me in February this year when I got the surgery that I'll win Wimbledon, US Open, and Cincinnati, it would be hard to believe", he said. Barty and Vandeweghe kissed the trophy and won $700,000 for their championship.
Del Potro is forced into an error on the next point, but he digs out a drop shot on the next point and Djokovic puts a backhand volley wide of the mark.
Djokovic says he owes his own success to the rivalries which he has developed with 37-year-old Federer and 32-year-old Nadal over the past decade.
He will climb above Del Potro to third in the rankings and could yet overtake number one Nadal by the end of the season.
"Pete Sampras is one of the biggest legends ever to play the game", Djokovic said after earning a third US Open crown with a 6-3, 7-6 (7/4), 6-3 victory over Juan Martin del Potro. "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".
Injury troubles and personal problems contributed to Djokovic going more than two years without a slam following his 2016 French Open triumph, but he looked back to his brilliant best at Wimbledon in July and again proved the class of the field at Flushing Meadows as he secured a second successive major.
With the Arthur Ashe Stadium roof closed as heavy rain swept NY, conditions were slow and sluggish.
Some 38cm (15in) to 64cm (25in) of rain is forecast in some areas - with up to one metre (40in) at the centre of the storm. Communities could lose electricity for weeks, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Administrator Brock Long said.
His fear? That he would be swept into a brewing scandal about Russian contacts and miss out on a job in the Trump administration. The two said they could set up a meeting between the Trump campaign and Russian government officials.
