Novak Djokovic clinched his third US Open title on Sunday with a 6-3, 7-6 (7/4), 6-3 triumph over Juan Martin del Potro. With the win, Djokovic has leveled with Pete Sampras's mark of 14 Grand Slams.
Playing in his eighth final in New York and already the champion in 2011 and 2015, Djokovic is now just three Slams behind Rafael Nadal and six back from the record 20 held by Roger Federer.
This was the third time that the 31-year-old Serb completed the Wimbledon-US Open double. Djokovic missed last year's tournament with an elbow injury which sent his career into a mini-crisis.
This was world number three Del Potro's second Slam final, nine years after he was crowned US Open champion.
It was Djokovic's 15th win over Del Potro and fifth in five at the Slams. Victory also means that 50 of the last 55 majors have been win by the 'Big Four' of Federer, Nadal, Djokovic and Andy Murray.
