I really do, " said Djokovic, who gave del Potro a hug at the net and then consoled him as he wiped away tears at his sideline seat. The first actually thing I saw related to tennis on the TV was his first or second Wimbledon championship.
Naomi Osaka's family members and mentors expressed a flurry of emotions following her September 9 (Japan time) victory over Serena Williams in the U.S. Open tennis tournament final.
"Difficult times but you learn from adversity".
Osaka's father Leonard, who went to NY for her match, said he was beyond excited, and relieved to see her win.
Juan Martín del Potro brought his own cheering section to the US Open, but in truth, the "gentle giant" from Argentina has the backing of the entire tennis world. He won two Grand Slams in one year.
The American has since received backing from the WTA and now Djokovic, who beat Del Potro 6-3 7-6 6-3, has weighed in with his thoughts on the controversial argument.
Playing on the same court where Pete Sampras claimed his 14th and final Grand Slam crown, Djokovic had endured more disappointment than joy on Arthur Ashe, mining just three titles from eight finals. Despite being very young and with big room for improvements - he didn't have a good serve despite his big height, to make an example - we saw a thing that best tennis players have in common: it was hard to hit a victor against him, and in exchange, he had a good ability to hit a victor shot.

Once this happens, it will become the first commercial 5G service to launch in both the USA and in the world. Those prices included taxes and fees, plus there are no annual contracts for 5G Home.
Amid increasing noise between points and serves, which prompted frequent interventions from chair umpire Alison Hughes, the previously assured Djokovic - who missed the tournament past year due to an elbow injury - appeared agitated.
With the victory, the Serb will rise to number three ranking in the world, only behind Nadal and Federer, reflecting the "Big Three" status they have shared for so long.
"Maybe the chair umpire should not have pushed Serena to the limit, especially in a Grand Slam final", the Serbian said, per The Mirror. Djokovic admitted that at the start of his career, he did not look forward to playing Nadal, Federer.
"But at the same time, life showed me that it takes time for good things, it takes time to really build them, for things to fall into place, so you can centre yourself, balance yourself, and thrive".
With the Arthur Ashe Stadium roof closed as heavy rain swept NY, conditions were slow and sluggish.
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.
Yet Djokovic was ultimately too strong, his ability to counter his opponent's two biggest weapons - Del Potro's serve and forehand - proving key as he triumphed 6-3 7-6 (7-4) 6-3 in three hours and 16 minutes. Of course, I'm sad to lose but I'm happy for Novak as well.
