Novak Djokovic has beaten Roger Federer to win the US Open men's title for the second time.

Federer has been back to his best and enjoyed the almost complete backing of the American support, but Djokovic showed his determination again to win 6-4 5-7 6-4 6-4.

After a four set match lasting three hours and 20 minutes, Djokovic turned to his box and pointed to his chest before commiserating his beaten opponent at the net.

"It's quite an incredible evening for me," he said.

"You can only give your best and I was trying to do that knowing he would be aggressive and not drop his level.

"He was always going to take the best out of me and I needed to do that to win this trophy."
