The Serbian Novak Djokovic was crowned champion in the United States Open, after defeating the Argentine Juan Martin del Potro in the final, demonstrating a high-level tennis that his rival could not decipher.
Djokovic prevailed in three sets, each set being 6-3, 7-6 and 6-3 to add his third US Open and 14th Grand Slam of his career, which places him again in the race for the number one spot in the ATP world ranking.
The Serbian knew how to take advantage of every inch of the court and was intelligent at the right moments to thwart the best shots of the Argentine, especially those of his dreaded right hand, capable of wreaking havoc on his rivals.
After a first half of a season to forget, in which he lost to low-ranking rivals, he began to see the change experienced after
returning to his old team, led by veteran Marian Vajda, with a victory in Cincinnati that allowed him to become the first tennis player to win the nine Masters 1000 tournaments and add two consecutive Grand Slams.
He is now in the third position of the ATP world ranking, while in the Race to London is in second place.
Naomi Osaka makes history in women’s singles
In a game in which she showed the best of her repertoire and in which Serena Williams fought with the chair umpire, Carlos Ramos, the Japanese Naomi Osaka was credited with the US Open with a 6-2 and 6-4
The Japanese gave a strong, solid performance from the base line and resisted the missiles launched by Williams, who was not at her best and, if that was not enough, lost points when she received three warnings, one for allegedly receiving instructions from her coach from the stands, another for breaking her racket against the floor and the last for verbal aggression, which cost her a game.
With Williams out of her mind, accusing the chair umpire of having robbed her in the match, Osaka had a clear path to becoming the first Japanese champion to be crowned at the US Open.
For Serena Williams it was a $ 17,000 fine that would be deducted from her $ 1.85 million prize for being runner-up in the tournament.
