Novak Djokovic leads US Open final

With his third championship at Flushing Meadows, Djokovic matched Pete Sampras for third on the career list for Grand Slam titles. He was someone I was looking up to.

After taking just two points off Del Potro's first three service games, Djokovic, in his 23rd final at the majors, pounced to break for 5-3.

"The WTA believes that there should be no difference in the standards of tolerance provided to the emotions expressed by men vs. women and is committed to working with the sport to ensure that all players are treated the same", Simon said.

Djokovic had tumbled down the rankings, slowed previous year by an elbow injury and a loss of confidence that accompanied a 54-week title drought.

Djokovic leads Juan Martin del Potro 6-3, 7-6 (4).

Djokovic expressed his love for Sampras and said he was hoping to see him at Flushing Meadows on Sunday. I feel like these guys, rivalries with these guys, matches with Federer and Nadal, have made me the player I am, have shaped me into the player I am today.

"Life showed me that it takes time for good things, it takes time to really build them".

Although he was riding high coming into the Open, Djokovic was among the many struggling with crushing heat and humidity in the first week.

After Serena Williams tirade, tennis umps consider boycotting her matches
Boycotting Serena exclusively makes it that much easier for her to argue that the umps have it in for her. Williams protested, telling Ramos he was a liar and a " thief for stealing a point" from her.

With Djokovic having also won Wimbledon, only Roger Federer (20) and Rafael Nadal (17) have claimed more. Barty and Vandeweghe won the second set tiebreaker 7-2 and won the third 8-6 to win for the second time in four meetings this season against Babos and Mladenovic.

But everything - his health, his backhand and his confidence - has come together this season for the Argentine to have his best year since 2009, when he won the US Open and snapped Roger Federer's 40-match NY win streak in the final.

Osaka has never been to Nemuro, but she is said to have expressed a desire to visit the place where her mother was born, although her grandfather commented, "She'll be busy and I guess it will be hard for her (to come soon)".

It's del Potro's first major final since he won his only one in the 2009 U.S. Open by beating Roger Federer.

Those produce free points against so many foes, but not against Djokovic, who always seemed to have the answers - and who said he convinced himself that all of the "Oles" were people calling out his own nickname, "Nole".

"I was so happy to be playing the final against this magnificent idol", added Del Potro of his close friend Djokovic.

"I repeat, the second set was a milestone, the audience got excited and turned on, but the experience from the match with Federer helped me to get it all easier". It takes a lot of effort to actually stay poised in this moment. "I really wish him all the best and I know he's going to stand here again with the champions trophy". I had my corner, as well.
