Novak Djokovic has been crowned as the US Open champion after defeating Juan Martin del Potro 6-3 7-6 (7/4) 6-3 in the final, according to a report on Talksport.

The Serbian international was the deserved champion after a string of very impressive performances throughout the tournament.

The win has moved Djokovic into the joint third position in the list of male grand slam singles champions with 14 titles.

The Serb has seemingly put his injury woes behind him and after making a disappointing start to the year, he has really stepped up his performances in recent months.

Djokovic has won Wimbledon, the Cincinnati Masters and now the US Open all within a couple of months and he is back to his best.

With Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal both struggling at the moment, Djokovic has seized the opportunity to win some titles and his goal of becoming the world number one again looks possible.

This is Djokovic’s third US Open title and it is one of his favourite events to play in.
