"When I had the surgery of my elbow earlier this year I could truly understand what Juan Martin was going through", Djokovic said at the trophy ceremony, referring to the Argentine's long battles with injury. The first actually thing I saw related to tennis on the TV was his first or second Wimbledon championship.
It is Djokovic's thid U.S. Open title and first since 2015.
Djokovic's most hard opponent this tournament has been the heat and humidity, so Sunday's cool and wet conditions, resulting in the roof being shut on Arthur Ashe Stadium, were perfectly to his liking.
"I just feel like, as Serena said in the closing ceremony, Osaka deserves to have her moment". From 1-3, Del Potro won three games in a row and had Djokovic rattled.
Nadal hobbled out of a semi-final match against Del Potro after two sets.
That left Djokovic, who missed the U.S. Open a year ago because of a right elbow injury, as the last man standing to defend the "Big Four's" title streak against a man who had broken it once before.
Novak Djokovic of Serbia celebrates his victory over Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina during their 2018 US Open men's singles final match on September 9, 2018 in NY. He now trails Roger Federer's record of 20 by six and is just three behind Rafael Nadal for second all-time. Djokovic admitted that at the start of his career, he did not look forward to playing Nadal, Federer. "I owe it to them".

Luke Shaw 'in no rush to sign Manchester United contract'
Mata, writing in his weekly blog, noted Shaw had been in top form at Manchester United and wished him a speedy recovery. The setbacks appear to have made Shaw stronger, though, and Man United fans can't wait to see him back in action.
But everything - his health, his backhand and his confidence - has come together this season for the Argentine to have his best year since 2009, when he won the US Open and snapped Roger Federer's 40-match NY win streak in the final.
The match's true turning point came in the eighth game of the second set, after Djokovic had lost three straight games and was trailing 3-4 on serve.
Since his June trek with his wife up Montagne Sainte-Victoire, the mountain that famously also served as an inspiration for Paul Cézanne, the 31-year-old has added a pair of Grand Slam titles to his resume. Of course, I'm sad to lose but I'm happy for Novak as well.
Yet the atmosphere was more positive on Sunday as spectators enjoyed an absorbing contest - again played under the roof of Arthur Ashe Stadium due to rain - between two great friends.
He needed four sets to get past 41st-ranked Hungarian Marton Fucsovics in the first round and another to get past 61st-ranked American Tennys Sandgren in the second.
The effort took its toll on a suddenly weary-looking Del Potro as a 95-minute set was claimed by Djokovic in the tiebreak.
