Novak Djokovic vs Juan Martin del Potro, US Open 2018 final

Juan Martin Del Potro in action against Rafael Nadal during the 2018 US Open

Having worked so hard to resist Del Potro's charge, Djokovic saw his tenacity rewarded as Del Potro's forehand again went missing at the worst moment, successive errors from 4-4 in a tie-break proving costly.

With all the singing and noise levels inside the stadium, it felt to Djokovic like he was at a football match but he thanked the fans of both sides for creating such an incredible atmosphere.

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.

Djokovic collects $3.8 million and his third U.S. Open championship.

Djokovic, who won Wimbledon in July, has now won 14th grand slam titles - putting him level with Pete Sampras and behind only Roger Federer (20) and Rafael Nadal (17) on the all-time men's singles list. "That's what I got from them".

Sessions has previously testified to Congress that he pushed back against the proposal, but the memo filed by Mr. The former aide was the first person to be arrested as part of the special counsel's investigation.

The pair, who are great friends on the ATP Tour, shared other special moments together after the match with Del Potro having made his first Grand Slam final since winning in NY back in 2009.

Del Potro, the No. 3 seed from Argentina, advanced in Friday's other semifinal when defending champion Rafael Nadal retired from their semifinal because of a painful right knee after dropping the opening two sets.

Even Del Potro accepts that the odds are on Djokovic's side. It was even louder because of the closed roof over Arthur Ashe Stadium to keep out the rain.

Yet Djokovic was ultimately too strong, his ability to counter his opponent's two biggest weapons - Del Potro's serve and forehand - proving key as he triumphed 6-3 7-6 (7-4) 6-3 in three hours and 16 minutes.

Novak Djokovic celebrates his US Open 2018 victory at the Arthur Ashe Stadium. It's also Novak's first US Open final after he missed last year's due to elbow injury and now he is back to his best. "He's my idol. Pete, I love you".

Serena Williams beats Anastasija Sevastova to reach final
Prior to this meeting, though, it is the first semi-final, between Serena Williams and Anastasia Sevastova, starting at midnight. She recovered to win in three sets, with her opponent accusing her after the match of acting.

"When I had the surgery on my elbow I could truly understand what Juan Martin was going through", Djokovic said. "But I'm happy for Novak and his team".

"You learn from adversity. when you have doubtful moments when things are not working out as you want (them) to".

Djokovic went on to congratulate Del Potro for his achievements despite all the injury trouble and made a massively sporting gesture by saying he knew Del Potro will stand as champion at this podium one day.

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.
