History in the making for Federer-Del Potro final

It will be a thrilling all Wilson final, when Roger Federer takes on Juan Martin Del Potro for the 2009 US Open Men’s Singles title as both players look to make history when they step onto Arthur Ashe Stadium court tomorrow.

Earlier this year, Federer captured the Roland Garros and Wimbledon titles and now is attempting to become the first player to win three consecutive major championships in one season since Laver completed the Grand Slam in 1969. He is also bidding to become the first man since Tilden in 1925 to win a sixth consecutive US Open title and just the fourth man in history to win six successive titles at the same Grand Slam championship. Federer has never lost a US Open semifinal match and he kept that record in tact, as he used his [K]Six-One Tour racket to prevail in straight sets 7-6, 7-5, 7-5 over Djokovic and reach the final.

Juan Martin Del Potro used his [K]Six-One 95 racket to dispatch of Nadal 6-2, 6-2, 6-2 and become the first Argentine to reach a major final since Puerta at the 2005 Roland Garros championship. In his 1st appearance in a major final, Del Potro is bidding to become only the second South American champion at the US Open since Vilas in 1977. At the age of 20 years and 355 days, Del Potro is the youngest US Open finalist since Djokovic in the 2007 final.

Tomorrow’s final promises to be a great match of contrasting styles and an exciting rematch of this year’s French Open semifinal.

One response to “History in the making for Federer-Del Potro final

  1. It is great to see Roger Federer back in the final. Also good to see a new face in a Grand Slam final with Del Potro advancing past Nadal.

    Roger obviously has the edge as he is 6-0 in the head-to-head. He also stopped Del Potro in the Australian Open and the French Open. The Aussie Open result will be something Del Potro will want to get out of his mind. It was 6-3, 6-0, 6-0.

    I guess if he has a revenge type mentality it could help him stop Roger taking his sixth straight US Open title.

    Must be the great racquets that helped both players get into the final. I used a K Six-One 95 earlier this year. In my hands it may as well have been a racquet out of the 60’s. Unless I had a perfect swing and hit the ball in the sweet spot my shots died. But have to say when I did hit it nicely it felt good.
