The world No.1 repelled a spirited fightback from Federer to carve out a 6-4 5-7 6-4 6-4 victory in a riveting final at Flushing Meadows.

Djokovic’s triumph secured the 28-year-old Serb his 10th grand slam title, placing him alongside American Bill Tilden in equal seventh place on the all-time men’s grand slam leaderboard.
