Djokovic def. Wawrinka, 2-6, 7-6 (7-4), 3-6, 6-3, 6-4
Advancing to his fourth consecutive U.S. Open final was not an easy task for No. 1 Novak Djokovic.
Djokovic squared off against No. 9 Stanislas Wawrinka in the second marathon five-set match of the season between the two players.
Just like their showdown at the fourth round of the Australian Open, Djokovic came out victorious.
The Serbian did not play his best tennis in the first two sets, but somehow he pulled out a win in the second set tiebreak to shift momentum in his direction.
Wawrinka countered back with a win in the third set, but the Swiss player could not keep up with the conditioning of Djokovic in the final two sets.
Djokovic will face the winner of the No. 2 Rafael Nadal vs. No. 8 Richard Gasquet in Monday's final.
