Djokovic, Del Potro set for clash of styles in US Open final

Championship preview del Potro vs. Djokovic

"Del Porto, who turns 30 later this month, might have reached the final unexpectedly, but the 6'6" Argentine's blistering serve is something that could bring trouble for Djokovic.

That left Djokovic, who missed the U.S. Open past year because of a right elbow injury, as the last man standing to defend the "Big Four's" title streak against a man who had broken it once before.

Novak Djokovic, of Serbia, returns a shot to Juan Martin del Potro, of Argentina, during the men's final of the U.S. Open tennis tournament, Sunday, Sept. 9, 2018, in NY.

When is Novak Djokovic vs Juan Martin del Potro US Open 2018 men's singles final match? Djokovic a two-time US Open champ and 13-time Grand Slam victor, was just that much better than Nishikori in a 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 win to reach his record-tying eighth final in NY.

A win would make this his best year in almost a decade. "I love to play with Rafa because he's the biggest fighter in this sport". However, Djokovic eventually broke for a 3-2 lead in the second and there was an inevitability to proceedings thereafter.

Playing on the same court where Pete Sampras claimed his 14th and final Grand Slam crown, Djokovic had endured more disappointment than joy on Arthur Ashe, mining just three titles from eight finals. "He's my idol. Pete, I love you".

The 31-year-old Serb is now just three behind Rafael Nadal and six back from Federer.

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. Not against Djokovic, who always seemed to have all the answers - and who said he convinced himself that all of those "Oles" were actually people calling out his own nickname, "Nole".

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.

There have been six draws as well, and the most recent encounter was in a friendly back in 2017, which ended in a stalemate. Three players, Thilo Kehrer, Nico Schulz and Kai Havertz, will have their first chance to earn their worldwide debut.

Things looked ominous for Del Potro as Djokovic seized control early on, moving magnificently and constructing a number of superb points with precision striking.

A costly double-fault from Del Potro - his first of the match - and a series of errors saw Djokovic move one game away from victory and after three hours and 16 minutes he completed the job with an unstoppable overhead smash and then lying flat on his back on the court in celebration.

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. Later, after winning a point, Djokovic put that finger to his ear, as if to say, "Who are you cheering for now?!" It will be Djokovic's second back-to-back final after winning the Wimbledon in July after returning from injury.
