The Tennis Channel will replay the men’s final at 8 and 11 p.m. ET on Sunday and throughout the day on Monday, Sept. 10.
Fresh off his Wimbledon title in July, Djokovic enters the final on a major heater. He has won his last 13 sets dating back to a Round-of-64 victory over Tennys Sandgren. That was also the last time he played more than 11 games in a match.
Djokovic is looking to win multiple Grand Slam events in the same year for the fourth time in his career, and for the first time since 2015 when he was victorious at the Australian and U.S. Opens. Those tourneys are where the Serb has claimed eight of his 13 Grand Slam titles.
Del Potro finds himself in the final after a slightly more arduous path, going to tiebreakers on five occasions (winning four), including three in the past two matches. That includes Friday’s semifinal win over No. 1 seed Rafael Nadal, a match that ended with defending U.S. Open champ Nadal retiring down two sets because of a knee injury.
The Argentinian has faced Djokovic 18 times in his career, winning just four. His last victory was in the 2016 Olympics in Brazil and his last win on the ATP Tour came at Indian Wells in 2013.
