US Open Men's Final - 027

4

For the fourth consecutive year, the men’s final has been played on Monday.

6

Sixth defeat in a row for Nadal against Djokovic. All in 2011 and all in finals. Nadal still leads the overall series 16-13.
It would be time to have a game plan and stop playing again and again on Djokovic’s backhand, Nadal. (check out Nadal-Djokovic head-to-head here).

Victories for Djokovic in 2011, against two losses.

Sam Stosur ended a 31-year drought for Australian women when she became the first since Evonne Goolagong at Wimbledon in 1980, to capture a Grand Slam on Monday.
Goolagong didn’t wait long to congratulate her, texting Sam Stosur moments after her US Open win to say: “Twinkletoes, you finally have got what you deserved”
Next challenge for Sam: win the Australian Open in front of her home crowd. Last Aussie to capture the title is Chris O’Neil who surprised everybody for her one and only career title at the Open in 1978.
