    Points won by each set: | 33-27, 34-43, 37-29, 32-20 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    28 % Nadal – 32 of 112
    12 % Djokovic – 18 of 143

    The 3-hour 43-minute match was halted by rain (for two hours) at 4-all in the 2nd set. Before it happened, Djokovic had already led 4:1* (30-all). Up to that point, Nadal had won 19 consecutive sets! “For the first time in my career, I played a very, very good match in this tournament,” said Nadal, who never had been past the semifinals at Flushing Meadows. “That’s my feeling, no? I played my best match in the U.S. Open at the most important moment.” Nonetheless, from the start of the event he was serving better than ever.

    Nadal’s route to his 42nd (first US Open) title:
    1 Teymuraz Gabashvili 7-6(4), 7-6(4), 6-3
    2 Denis Istomin 6-2, 7-6(5), 7-5
    3 Gilles Simon 6-4, 6-4, 6-2
    4 Feliciano Lopez 6-3, 6-4, 6-4
    Q Fernando Verdasco 7-5, 6-3, 6-4
    S Mikhail Youzhny 6-2, 6-3, 6-4
    W Novak Djokovic 6-4, 5-7, 6-4, 6-2
