Stan Wawrinka clinched his third grand slam title by blasting out Novak Djokovic to win the US Open.

Wawrinka had demolished Djokovic in the French Open final last year and he pulled off a similar display of destruction at Flushing Meadows to win 6-7 (1/7) 6-4 7-5 6-3.


Djokovic struggled physically in the final set and took a controversial time-out before Wawrinka’s serve, but the Swiss held firm in Arthur Ashe Stadium to seal a dramatic victory.
