“We shared very joyful and positive happy moments in the locker room after the match where we hugged”, Djokovic said. Pressured by Djokovics body-twisting ability to extend points, Federer committed 35 unforced errors; Djokovic made 16.
If not for an incredible upset performance by Federer’s Davis Cup teammate Stan Wawrinka over Djokovic in the French Open final last month, Djokovic, like Serena Williams, would be gunning for a Grand Slam at the U.S. Open in New York later this summer.
Djokovic was twice treated by a trainer on his left shoulder near the end of the second set, but showed no sign of injury as he dominated the third set to reach his 17th Grand Slam final. After this one, Djokovic bellowed.
