Juan Martin Del Potro: Roger Federer pays tribute to 'caring' Argentine

A clinical Novak Djokovic dismissed Juan Martin Del Potro 6-3 7-6 (4) 6-3 to collect his third US Open title on Sunday, giving him 14 Grand Slams to move into a tie for third on the all-time list alongside Pete Sampras.

Djokovic and Del Potro walked on Arthur Ashe Stadium court with the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center still buzzing over the controversial women's final on Saturday, won by Japan's Naomi Osaka after Serena Williams incurred three code violations.

Djokovic outlasted del Potro to win 6-3, 7-6, 6-3, and although a straight sets win might seem uncomplicated, del Potro had a number of chances, especially in the second set when he had three break points while leading 4-3, in a game that lasted more than 20 minutes.

In the immediate aftermath of Djokovic's victory, he embraced del Potro at the net in a heartwarming show of class and respect between the friends and foes.

Federer lost in the fourth round in NY, while Nadal retired from his semifinal against del Potro because of a bad right knee. "That's what I got from them".

An emotional Del Potro shed tears in his chair at the end of the contest, but the 29-year-old can be hugely proud of his efforts after a thrilling run in the Big Apple.

A series of missed forehands by del Potro in the tiebreaker put Djokovic back on course and he finished with a flourish, taking the last three games - sealing the title on his first match point.

Since playing on the grass at Queen's Club in June, Djokovic has only lost two matches, while he extended his imposing winning record over Del Potro to 15-4.

Where is Novak Djokovic vs Juan Martin del Potro US Open 2018 men's singles final match? "I really wish him all the best and I know he's going to stand here again with the champions trophy".

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.

The game went so long that when it ended, with Djokovic holding to 4-all, spectators began leaving their seats, perhaps thinking it was time for a changeover, even though it wasn't.

"I was very, very disappointed with my performance that day", Djokovic recalled Sunday, explaining that he went hiking in the mountains in France to clear his head after that setback.

"You learn from adversity. when you have doubtful moments when things are not working out as you want (them) to". "I try to take the best out of myself in those moments".
