"What. A. Finish", the US Open tweeted after the Serbian won, adding that he cruised to the final in Flushing Meadows after defeating Nishikori 6-3, 6-4, 6-2.
But Djokovic will not under-estimate the 29-year-old who was two sets to love ahead of Nadal in the semi-finals on Friday when the world number one retired with a knee injury. This is not vintage Djokovic just yet, but he is still good enough to win at the highest level.
"From my experience, and I can only talk about myself", Djokovic said, "this has been definitely the toughest U.S. Open in the last, you know, 10 years that I have played in in terms of conditions". "I was putting (constant) pressure on him, trying to move him around the court, take away the rhythm from him". But he had a knee issue earlier in the tournament, when he had it taped during his victory against Karen Khachanov in the third round.
Nadal, either unhappy or uncomfortable with the trainer's first tape job - he notoriously dislikes playing with tape on - tore the wrapping off not long after. I didn't take any pleasure in watching Nadal go through the motions in that second set - especially in case he did more damage. Even after that, Nadal wasn't able to run like usual. "That is all", Nadal said in a post-match press conference.
Mike Bryan broke a tie for most major doubles titles with John Newcombe, and at 40 years, 4 months became the oldest Grand Slam doubles champion in the professional era.
Nadal's stamina and famous fitness have been put to the test on the sweltering Flushing Meadows hardcourts as he has logged almost 16 hours through five matches.
Nadal said that he first felt a knee problem in his second- or third-round match last week and that it acted up again Friday starting in the fifth game.
"I know what is going on with the knee". "He's a dear friend, someone that I respect a lot".
"The problem is this time it was something a little bit more aggressive because it was in one movement". It was not something progressive. Mentally it is much worse.

The Japanese player's spirit was finally broken and his serve followed, with Djokovic claiming his fourth break with a fist-pumping celebration before serving for the match.
"That's frustrating. Can't tell you another thing". It's not about losing. "This year has been fantastic until this moment", he added.
"I know things are going the right way". I am playing well. "Especially after coming from injury, I'm enjoying this challenge". I have missed a lot of opportunities. "I think the key of the match was the first set".
"All my career everybody say that because of my style, I will have a short career".
"I still have a passion for the game so I will keep fighting and working hard".
