Last night’s match was supposed to occur in the early afternoon, but a 3 hour delay due to rain, dictated a 7:15pm start. Although construction for the ceiling has been going on since 2012, it will be another year till the retractable roof is placed and ready to use, at Arthur Ashe Stadium. But, none of these construction or climate issues seemed destined to ruin Novak Djokovic best year yet.
The crowd was overwhelmingly cheering for Federer, to the point of irritating the Serbian, Djokovic, who let out a jumping growl after shaking off a break point and winning another set. Nothing unexpected, since it seems Djokovic can only get the public on his side when he plays at home. And for that to occur his family had to literally convince the government and sponsor the event themselves. “Serbia Open” was Serbia’s first and only time hosting an ATP event, which only ran from 2009 to 2012, with Novak Djokovic winning it twice in 2009 and 2011.
But, this wasn’t Serbia it was the USA and the love would have to be won by Djokovic after a grueling 3 hours and 20 minutes, well into the night. The final result would read: 6-4, 5-7, 6-4, 6-4 in Djokovic’s favor, allowing him to enter the two-digit club, with 10 major singles Grand Slam titles. This year alone has seen him winning the: Australian Open, Wimbledon and now the US Open. He also reached the French Open final where Stan “the Man” Wawrinka managed to stop, what still sums up Djokovic best year, at age 28.

As for the crowds beloved Roger Federer, none of the timepieces from his Rolex collection were in sight. All that was left at the end of this 42nd match between him and Djokovic, was an overall draw (21 victories a piece) and the loss, after six years without reaching the US Open final. At 34 years of age he’s still playing great tennis and doing his best to mix things up. But, this was Novak Djokovic’s year.
