Djokovic wins a thriller to reach the US Open final.

Picture

Novak Djokovic saved two match points to beat Roger Federer in the semi-finals of the US Open for the second year in a row in another astonishing match at Flushing Meadows. This time the world number one fought back from two sets down but still looked doomed to defeat when Federer broke in the deciding set and served for victory. However, a stunning forehand return on the third seed’s first match point turned the tide and Djokovic reeled off four games in a row to triumph 6-7 (7/9) 4-6 6-3 6-2 7-5 in three hours and 51 minutes. The Serb is now one win away from a third grand slam title of the year while Federer’s loss means he will finish a season without one for the first time since 2002.

The 24-year-old led the crowd in a mass dance after hailing the victory the best of his stellar year and one of the best of his career.
