Novak Djokovic’s domination of men’s tennis has been so overwhelming that quite a number of people didn’t give Stan Wawrinka a chance in Sunday’s US Open Finals.
Despite waltzing into the finals, Novak failed to make it count, falling to Wawrinka’s superior determination and will. With Over three hours of tennis played, Wawrinka triumphed in the course of four sets, 6-7, 6-4, 7-5, 6-3.
It is Wawrinka’s first US Open title and his third grand slam title. Despite a memorable match, the decision of match officials to give Djokovic a medical timeout to deal with issued in his toes will be looked at cynically, prompting allegations that they bent the match rules.
