It was your author's first time attending the US Open so I was lucky to see such a great match and to enjoy the venue, so close to home. The match started at 4pm with many empty seats that later filled to capacity by about 5:15pm.

Djokovic's consistent play and lack of mistakes made it all the more difficult for Murray to eke out a win. Djokovic's concession speech at the end showed tremendous grace and respect for the winner of Men's Singles, Andy Murray of Great Britain (below). Murray, age 25, takes home US$1,900,000 as winner.
