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.

There was lot of pressure on federer (winning 6th consecutive us open) which also made him to do so many unforced errors in the deciding set.

But i think its time to relax. He broke all records and he proved many wrong by winning french open, which in

Once again only 47% of his first services in.

And that weak second serve.

11 double faults.

poor effort by Roger Federer this match.

It's a shame.

Guys, Roger lost but he still is the best. He should take a break and come back stronger. Delpotro deserved it as much as Roger by the way.
Rog! Don't worry we r behind u 4 ever.
