Fan favourite Novak Djokovic was stunned by third seed Stan Wawrinka to win the US Open Final. Stan had out-powered Djokovic in the French Open final last year and he pulled off a similar display of destruction at Flushing Meadows to win 6-7, 6-4, 7-5, and 6-3.

Djokovic started off really strong but struggled physically in the later stage of the match. Even before the tournament began, the world no.1 suggested the injury to his left wrist almost caused him to withdraw.

Despite Serbian’s physical issues, Wawrinka was a convincing champion, he hit 46 winners, broke Djokovic’s serve six-time and became the first player to beat the top seed at the US Open after losing the first set.
