Novak Djokovic and Juan Martin del Potro have "restored faith in tennis" after an incredible moment following the US Open final.

Brace yourself for a stunning men's singles final between Novak Djokovic and Juan Martin del Potro.

The Novak Djokovic vs Juan Martin del Potro US Open 2018 men's singles final match will be played at the Arthur Ashe Stadium in NY.

It was only the second set dropped by the Argentine at the tournament.

The police chaplain was at the scene to give support to officers involved in the gruesome discovery and investigation. The man is in custody while homicide detectives try to piece together the timeline leading up to the deaths.

Playing on the same court where Sampras claimed the last of his 14 slams, Djokovic has endured more disappointment than joy in Arthur Ashe Stadium, losing five finals. But Djokovic was in no mood to hang around, winning the last three games to clinch the crown.

"Well it's not easy to speak right now but I love you too guys", Del Potro said in his on-court interview after being met with huge cheers from supporters inside the arena in NY.

Both men had one grand-slam title to their name, but for some Del Potro looked the safer bet.

But off the back of a 24-shot rally, Djokovic broke again for 5-3 and he was within tantalising touching distance of his 14th Grand Slam title, just three months after he had left Roland Garros in despair after a shattering quarter-final exit.

For Del Potro it wasn't to be, but his return to a Grand Slam final nine years after his first with four wrist surgeries in between deserves vast credit.

"I'm so, so happy to be playing the final against this magnificent idol". After a slow start of the season following an injury, the Serb has built his form since Rome and he won titles at Wimbledon and Cincinnati to announce the best possible return that could become even more impressive if he celebrates in the final tonight.

UEFA Nations League explained!
But whether the Nations League should be linked to Euro qualifying, and if so in what way, are quibbles for further down the line. The UEFA Nations League is meant to bring extra competitiveness to worldwide breaks instead of the previous qualifiers.

After taking just two points off Del Potro's first three service games, Djokovic, in his eighth final in NY and 23rd at the majors, pounced to break for 5-3.
