Serena Williams loses the US Open Women’s finals after a series of code violations and penalties given by the umpire. This latest loss for the tennis star comes after the French Tennis Federation dress code controversy.
NOVAK Djokovic has won a tiebreaker to take a 95-minute second set, moving a set away from the U.S. Open title.
Djokovic leads Juan Martin del Potro 6-3, 7-6 (4).
It appeared it could be easier when Djokovic broke del Potro in the second game of the set and led 3-1. But then he was broken in his next game. Del Potro then held at love and had chances for another break on his next opportunity before Djokovic finally held to end a 22-point game that lasted more than 20 minutes. Del Potro had a 3-1 lead in the tiebreaker before Djokovic recovered to take it. Djokovic is bidding for his third U.S. Open title, his second straight Grand Slam title this season and a 14th overall to tie Pete Sampras for third all- time.
