US Open Diary – Day 14 Highlights – The Men’s Finals – 2016

QUEENS, NY, September 11, 2016  – 

It was a battle all right! But in the end it was 3-seed Stan Wawrinka (SUI) wresting the top prize from 1-seed Novak Djokovic (SRB) in this year’s Open final.

Wawrinka’s steady play and workhorse-like stamina wore down Djokovic — who hasn’t been his usual strong self since he lost at both Wimbledon and the Olympics.

The final score from tonight’s contest: 7-6, 4-6, 7-5, 6-3.

BEST QUOTE – US OPEN DAY FOURTEEN

“I just didn’t capitalise at all on my opportunities. I had plenty of them… In matches like this if you don’t use your opportunities the other guy comes and takes it, and that’s what he [Wawrinka] did. So that’s why I said he was more courageous, because he stepped in and played aggressive, where I was kind of more waiting for things to happen, and that’s it.” — Novak Djokovic, in his post-match press conference.
