    Points won by each set: | 36-29, 34-26, 30-20 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    29 % Del Potro – 25 of 85
    14 % Nadal – 13 of 90

    The opening four games didn’t offer any clues that the final scoreline would be so one-sided: after 26 minutes Del Potro led *3:1, but they both seemed at the top of their games, thus the crowd at the Arthur Ashe Stadium could rather expect an epic encounter. Once the 1st set was concluded (one of the most tight ‘6-2’ sets you can imagine), and a break point at 3:1 in the 2nd set was saved, the Argentine [6] began playing with enormous self-confidence off both wings, meanwhile Nadal [3] had some back issues restricting hard serving, and it turned into a one-man show.
