DISPLAYING?steely resolve and a never-say-die attitude, Serbian Novak Djokovic stormed back from the brink of defeat to beat Roger Federer to reach the final of the US Open tonight.
Facing two match points against a beloved player whose name is already in the history books, Njokovic turned violently on a wide, 108 mph serve from Federer for a cross-court, forehand winner that barely nicked the line.
The fans in Arthur Ashe Stadium, ready to explode for a Federer victory, instead found themselves taking a cue from the top-seeded Djokovic – who raised his hands, asking them to pump up the volume, and give him a little more love. (EZS/AP)
