Tennis  > General Tennis  > Del Potro Stuns Fed to Take the 09 US Open Title
September 14, 2009, 10:45 PM
In a way similar to this years Australian Open Final against Nadal, Federer breaks down in the 5th set. Poor serving and a ton of backhand errors were partly a result of Del Potro's overpowering game but even still, Fed let this one slip away.

Roger could have had a calendar slam in 2009 if it weren't for a couple of 5th sets. Capturing the French makes it a great year for him no matter what but it was very close to being even better. Who would have thought that Del Potro would beat Murray to a 1st Slam? ATP tennis now has an awesome Top 5!
