Ferrer blown away by Djokovic in New York

Spaniard finds going harder against champion in Sunday’s semifinal resumption after wind break

David Ferrer’s superb run at the US Open in an already superb season came to end on Sunday, as he was beaten in four sets in the semifinal by defending champion Novak Djokovic at Flushing Meadows.

The world number five had looked the better of the two on Saturday, breaking the Serbian twice and was poised to serve for the set before the match was suspended due to severe wind. However, he couldn’t regain that control on proceedings when the match resumed on Sunday and Djokovic cruised to a 2-6, 6-1, 6-4, 6-2 win to deny the hard-working Ferrer the chance to contest his first Grand Slam final.

The 25-year-old now meets Andy Murray, who will replace Rafael Nadal as world number three in the new ATP rankings, in Monday’s final.
