Djokovic vs. Murray: Score and Highlights from US Open 2012 Men's Final
Scroll down for updates from throughout the match.
Andy Murray defeats Novak Djokovic 7-6 (10), 7-5, 2-6, 3-6, 6-2 in the 2012 US Open.
Clearly relieved, Andy tied the longest US Open final in history (in which his coach, Ivan Lendl, lost in five sets). He is now a member of the elite "Major Club" and who knows where he will go from here.
I hope you enjoyed the coverage and, more importantly, the match itself.
Novak Djokovic has called the trainer and called for a medical timeout, even though this is the game before Andy's serve.
This is a very unsportsmanlike tactic although Andy is expected to give him the loss he may deserve—fair and square.
Here comes the moment of truth. Andy Murray just secured a double break, is up 5-2 and will now serve for his first Major title.
With this win he would be in contention with Roger Federer for "Man of the Summer". At this point, I see no chance of Djokovic inching back, even with a mental lapse from the oft-losing Scot.
Andy holds at love to move up 4-2 and make an incredibly emphatic statement.
