Honour to Del Potro

The Goat (or what many considers as the Goat) lost to the best of his generation, beaten in the previous 6 meetings (also including when he went two sets up at the 2009 Roland Garros with 2 hours and a half of incredible tennis).

Federer-Del potro was not the most thrilling of the Grand Slam final, the game quality was a bit more than decent; but surely it has been the best U.S. Open final since 1999 when Andre Agassi surprised Todd Martin by coming back from 2 sets to 1 down (the last five setter before the yesterday's clash). This was anyway the most surprising final since 2000, when another first-timer, Marat Safin, stunned Pete Sampras. So Del Potro, 20 years and 355 days old, has become the fifth youngest player to win this tournament.
