From sick-note Serb to Grand Slam warrior

From sick-note Serb to Grand Slam warrior

The Serb now leads del Potro 15-4 in career meetings, and 5-0 in Grand Slam encounters.

Osaka, the 20-year-old, who leaped ahead following her victory over 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams in the finals of the US Open, has become the youngest player to make her place in the list of top 20 players, WTA official website reported.

Djokovic has won 13 of his 14 Grand Slam titles since 2010, when the prize money for the champion moved past the £1m mark at all four majors.

Del Potro's forehand is among the most intimidating weapons in the sport, but it misfired under relentless pressure towards the end of the first set, Djokovic breaking in the eighth game - at the end of a 22-shot rally - and taking the opener.

To his credit, Del Potro rallied again to recover a break in the third set, but Djokovic was simply too good and sealed the match with a smash before collapsing in delight. At 1-1 in the second set, Djokovic suffocated Del Potro from the baseline to force out errors from the big man and got an early break.

Djokovic defeated Del Potro at the US Open to win his 14th title, putting him level with Pete Sampras, three behind Rafael Nadal and six adrift of Federer.

"I got here to the final after nine years which is unbelievable because this is my favourite tournament on tour". Little did anybody expect that in the next 16 years, across 64 Majors, not one or two but three players would stand shoulder to shoulder with the American great.

Novak Djokovic, of Serbia, celebrates after defeating Juan Martin del Potro, of Argentina. I played finals of Queen's, won Wimbledon, won Cincinnati, and won US Open.

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. Nadal's challenge looked doomed even as early as the first set, as he was feeling the injury after just four games, he admitted.

Federer and Nadal have made me the player I am today.

But at the 2012 Australian Open, nobody was questioning his courage anymore when he beat Nadal in the longest Grand Slam final of all time, a draining 5hr 53min masterpiece. "I watched him win one of his first Wimbledon championships, and I grew up playing and thinking that one day I'll be able to do what he does". I think we have pushed each other to the limit every time we get to play each other.

He was barking at himself, at his entourage, at a crowd vocally supporting his opponent, Juan Martin del Potro.

CoCo Vandeweghe of the United States and Ashleigh Barty won a thrilling three-setter against Kristina Mladenovic and Timea Babos that lasted nearly 2½ hours.

In all, the second set was a lengthy 95-minutes before ending for Djokovic in the tiebreaker, and saw both players leave the court for a change of clothes at its conclusion.

While controversy marred her win over Williams, leaving the champion in tears during the presentation ceremony, it should be noted that Osaka was a set up and performing magnificently when the chaos started.
