Novak Djokovic wins men't title in US open Tennis

@telegraph
In the US Open Tennis, Novak Djokovic of Serbia won the Men's singles final. He defeated Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina 6-3, 7-6, 6-3 in straight sets. It was Djokovic's 14th Grand Slam title and the third US Open title.


With this win, he has equalled Pete Sampras's mark of 14 Grand Slams. He is now just three Slams behind Rafael Nadal and six back from the record 20 held by Roger Federer.

Argentine third seed Del Potro had been seeking first Grand Slam title since 2009. After taking just two points off Del Potro's first three service games, Djokovic pounced to break for 5-3. 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.


Potro had three more chances in the eighth, all saved by Djokovic in a marathon 20- minute game. The effort took its toll on a suddenly weary-looking Del Potro as a 95- minute set was claimed by Djokovic in the tiebreak. Djokovic sprinted into a 3-1 lead in the third set before a battling Del Potro clung on, hitting back for 3-3.
