Monday's final: Roger vs. del Potro

14.09.2009 | Tennis

Roger will face Juan Martin del Potro in Monday's US Open final after beating Novak Djokovic in straight sets 7-6(3), 7-5, 7-5.

 

It is the third year running that Roger has beaten Djokovic in New York as he is now only one last step away from his sixth consecutive title! No one has won six U.S. titles in a row since Bill Tilden in the 1920s and no player has captured three Slams in a row in the same year since Rod Laver's 1969 Grand Slam sweep.

 

The most amazing moment of the semi-final was clearly Roger's forehand hit between the legs which he swatted past an amazed Djokovic into the empty part of the court. "I practice them a lot actually but they never work," Roger said. "That's why I guess it was the greatest shot I ever hit in my life." Having seen a TV replay himself, he commented "That's unbelievable!" His magical shot brought up a match point for Roger. Novak Djokovic did have his chances throughout the match, but was unable to seize them. So Roger took advantage and made everyting clear after 2 hours 34 minutes.

 

Monday's final will bring Roger's seventh career meeting with Del Potro, our champ having won their previous six meetings.

Del Porto deserved to win! Roger doesn't play at all! Unfortunatelly. I can't still believe it, but there is nothing from 16th GS trophy. Unfortunately.
