It's the Serb's 14th career Grand Slam singles title-tying Pete Sampras for third all time-and his second consecutive major win, as he triumphed at Wimbledon just two months ago.
Top-seeded Nadal had been favored to win this tournament from the start. It's wonderful. I don't feel sad that I couldn't win Grand Slams because of them.

Having worked so hard to resist Del Potro's charge, Djokovic saw his tenacity rewarded as Del Potro's forehand again went missing at the worst moment, successive errors from 4-4 in a tie-break proving costly. It was even louder because of the closed roof over Arthur Ashe Stadium to keep out the rain. The game is sure to be a play between brain and brawn on Sunday. He had all but deflated. "But Novak has everything to make records in this sport". After all he had the far bigger game - as demonstrated in the way he blew both Nadal and Federer off the court in that US Open run - and Djokovic had a habit for pulling out of matches with illness and injury.

"You can lose or win a trophy, but the love from the crowd, it could be even bigger than the tournament", del Potro said.
"I think most of all, the respect they had for other player, they never went over the line and that's something truly wonderful tonight", Djokovic said at the presentation ceremony.
A focused Djokovic continued to apply pressure in the third set until Del Potro finally cracked on serve to fall behind 5-3, with the Serb closing out the match with a ferocious overhead victor. "It will be in the heart for the rest of my life".
