Djokovic tops del Potro to win U.S. Open, 14th Slam title

From 1,042 to US Open final del Potro relishes return to Grand Slam title match

Novak Djokovic won his third US Open title and equalled Pete Sampras's record of 14 Grand Slam titles as he beat Juan Martin Del Potro 6-3, 7-6 (4), 6-3 in the men's singles final at the Arthur Ashe Stadium in NY on Sunday.

When Novak Djokovic won the US Open for a third time on Sunday, he regained his place as his sport's biggest ever on-court earner, BBC Sport reports.

Del Potro's sole Grand Slam title came at the U.S. Open in 2009 and he said it had been an emotional journey back to the Flushing Meadows final.

A focused Djokovic continued to apply pressure in the third set until Del Potro finally cracked on serve to fall behind 5-3, with the Serb closing out the match with a ferocious overhead victor.

In the absence of any representative body to speak for tennis officials, it fell to the ITF to say what should be evident to all: despite Williams's repeated insistence that Ramos owes her an apology, he was just doing his job when he penalised her a point and a game during Saturday's tumultuous women's US Open final.

Del Potro led the ensuing tiebreaker, 3-1, before Djokovic recovered to win six of the next seven points and wrap up a 95-minunte second set.

Juan Martin del Potro believes Novak Djokovic could eventually overtake Roger Federer to become the most successful male player in grand slam history. Roger Federer has 20 titles and Rafael Nadal 17. He showed off all of his court-covering, foe-frustrating, defense-to-offense skills down the stretch on the way to his third U.S. Open title, claiming the last 16 sets he played. "I don't know when will be my last tournament in this career, but I'm exciting to keep surprising myself doing things like this".

"I was hoping [Pete Sampras] was going to be here tonight", Djokovic said during the awards ceremony. "When they shout "Ole, ole, ole, ole", that's what I hear", he said of the raucous chants for Del Potro. Her grandfather, who lives in Nemuro, Hokkaido, expressed his joy, saying, "I want her to make a spectacular showing at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, too".

Warner Bros. bosses dismiss Henry Cavill casting drama
There are also no plans for a solo Superman film currently, but there is potential to revisit the character a few years from now. Ahead of those remarks, Cavill's manager Dany Garcia tweeted that "the cape is still in his closet", and that Warner Bros.

Yet the atmosphere was more positive on Sunday as spectators enjoyed an absorbing contest - again played under the roof of Arthur Ashe Stadium due to rain - between two great friends. Not against Djokovic, who always seemed to have all the answers.

Before his Wimbledon crown, Djokovic had gone two years without a grand-slam triumph, struggling with motivation, confidence and an elbow problem.

Novak Djokovic of Serbia celebrates with his wife Jelena Djokovic after winning his men's Singles finals match. Del Potro would not rue how many of those could have been his had he been injury-free all those years.

While Streep was beside herself, Jerry Seinfeld had more of a skeptical look.

But in that critical eight deuce game, the three break chances evaporated.

While Simona Halep of Romania retained her top spot on the list, Germany?s Angelique Kerber moved one spot up to acquire the third position.

"Of course, I'm sad because I lost but I'm happy for Novak and his team".
