2015 US Open champion Novak Djokovic

Djokovic defeats Federer, wins 2015 US Open

Novak Djokovic proved once again too strong for Roger Federer. Despite the crowd’s support, Federer lost in three hours 4-6 7-5 4-6 4-6. Djokovic claimed his second US Open title, his tenth Grand Slam overall.

Djokovic:

You know, winning Grand Slam is very special for any tennis player when you are dreaming of becoming a professional tennis player. When you are kind of finding that inspiration, motivation, these are the tournaments you dream of winning. So to actually relive these moments again after 2011 it’s quite incredible. To win against one of the biggest rivals, as you said, all-time Grand Slam champion, somebody that, you know, always keeps on fighting till the last point, keeps making you play an extra shot, yeah, all these things now are very special to me.

Federer:

Yeah, surely I am very disappointed. Like you said, I had my chances on my racquet. I should never been down in the score the way I was. But Novak did a great job of fending them off, and, you know, all of that.
It was a tough night, but still, I don’t know, thrilling at the same time.
