The men’s singles final of the U.S. Open takes centre stage on Sunday, as Novak Djokovic looks to defend his crown against Stan Wawrinka.

World No. 1 Djokovic has featured in six of the last seven finals at Flushing Meadows, while Sunday’s showdown will be the first time Wawrinka has made it all the way.

Both players came through hard-fought semi-finals to book their place in the last two, and although Djokovic comes into the clash as the hot favourite, Wawrinka is more than capable of serving up a surprise.

 

Date: Sunday, September 11

Time: 4 p.m. ET/9 p.m. BST

Venue: Flushing Meadows, New York

Prize Money: Winner $3.5 million; runner-up $1.75 million

The Swiss star has become something of a warrior on the court; his head never drops, and he’s able to get back into games when he finds himself on the back foot.

That was the case in his semi-final against Kei Nishikori, as the Japanese player looked much sharper for the opening two sets.

But after Wawrinka won a gruelling second set 7-5, there was only going to be one man facing Djokovic in the final.

And the 31-year-old has plenty of reasons to be optimistic ahead of Sunday, as he’s fared well against world No. 1s in previous Grand Slam finals, according to ESPN Stats & Info:



In fact, all finals have been kind to Wawrinka, as ATP Media Info revealed:
