The final's trophy presentation

This was also the first time the men's singles champion at the US Open won the title after being match point down since Andy Roddick in 2003, with Djokovic saving two match points against Roger Federer in the semifinals.[4] Remarkably, this was the second consecutive US Open where Djokovic saved two match points against Federer en route to the final and fifth consecutive US Open that Djokovic and Federer played each other.

Andy Roddick and John Isner, who both lost in the quarterfinals, would become the last American men to reach the quarterfinals of a Grand Slam tournament until Sam Querrey reached the quarterfinals at the 2016 Wimbledon Championships, a span of 22 Grand Slams.
