Del Potro stuns Federer to win U.S. Open - BSN SportsJuan Martin Del Potro today took a historic coup in the sports world to be crowned U.S. Open champion tennis after beating 3-6, 7-6 (7-5), 4-6, 7-6 (7 -- 4), 6-4 to Roger Federer, champion for five consecutive times in New York.

In his first Grand Slam final, the sixth favorite was Del Potro sets down twice and finished taking the victory in four hours and six minutes, frustrating the ambitions of world number one to reach his sixth straight victory over the cement Flushing Meadows and their sixteenth crown in a "big".

Based on the phenomenal power of his right and his mental strength, with a notable authority, Del Potro became the third Argentine to crown in New York after titles in 1977 Guillermo Vilas and Gabriela Sabatini in 1990.

"It was always my dream to play on this court and win this tournament. This day will always be in my mind, I do not need to explain why," said Del Potro, starting tomorrow and world number five who took a check $ 1,850,000 in prizes, moments before lifting the trophy in the middle of Arthur Ashe Stadium, with 24,000 people still witness and voice cracking with emotion.

Federer congratulated his successor. "He played a great game. I wanted to win, but good, with 40 wins in a row, I appreciate the support of all these people". The Swiss had not lost in the Big Apple since 2003 and played his final Grand Slam number 21.

Del Potro acknowledged before leaving the court he was "a little nervous." Federer, in contrast, was full of confidence on the big screen in the stadium. "It's good for me, although it could be dangerous," he acknowledged in relation to the inexperience of his opponent. And the Swiss took advantage immediately, breaking for 2-0. In that game, had so many break points in favor, five, as the Spanish Rafael Nadal had taken the entire match with Del Potro lost in the semis.

In the first set, which was 6-3 in 40 minutes, the Swiss implemented a successful tactic: Take your opponent to the network, which is perhaps its main shortcoming. There, Federer always won. And Del Potro also was wrong to not look far enough back of the Swiss.

Federer did not work the first service-in the first set had an effectiveness rate of only 41 percent-but he looked as comfortable and secure, while Del Potro seemed mired in impotence, much longer when the Swiss broke in the first game of the second set.

Del Potro put it back in the game unexpectedly. He began to drop his right, was stripped of his nerves, and Federer probably erred on the side of confidence, as when he ran for a balloon of his rival and beat him back to the red-similarity searching with his magic blow on the eve Novak Djokovic before, without turning to better align the stroke and the ball went long.

Being a set and a break down, the Argentine went back into the game with two passing shots-the first was won with the 'eye-√°guila' to match 5-5. And in the tiebreak, before a specialist, it's hand trembled. After miniquiebre and a winner, Del Potro was triple set point in his favor and took the last one with an inverted right to start again.

Federer's face said it all. At least there would be no easy victory. Del Potro sniffed that it was his time. With new confidence and a butt "shovels" incredibly powerful from the base in the third set, broke for 4-3 and first went to the front on the scoreboard. But Federer raised immediately, returning the break and holding his serve, despite being down 30-40.

Faced with a new "challenge" e-repetition-a dubious move requested by Del Potro, Federer lost his usual calm and angry with the umpire by the time it took Argentina to apply. "It is beyond the rules", I heard him say. And Federer when angry, usually grows. In the tenth game, a double fault before Del Potro led to break and set for the Swiss, who recovered the colors of your face.

In the fourth set, Federer missed a few break opportunities and Del Potro took theirs to be above 3.2. But Federer leveled everything with another break for 4-4. Soon after, the Swiss found two points to close the match, but Argentina pulled out of wonders under pressure and evened the set at five.

Del Potro, a pure kick, managed to force another tiebreak. Then a stranger Federer demolished. And he continued doing until completely crush it with the break in the second game of the fifth set, which paved the way to glory, he finished with his third win match point, when the Swiss ball was long and the Argentine mouth dropped up on the blue court.

With only 20 years old and with perhaps the best player of all time, Del Potro made big history.
