Roger Federer was serving for the match up 40-15. The crowd in Flushing roared for Federer. Novak Djokovic took it all in, nodded a few times, and realized the circumstances. Then he ripped an incredible cross-court winner off of Federer’s serve, asked the crowd if they were not entertained, and never looked back. He broke Federer’s serve and went on to win a thrilling match, 6-7, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2, 7-5.
Djokovic will face Rafael Nadal in the men’s final Monday. Nadal defeated Andy Murray in the other semifinal.
