    Djokovic on Sunday's opponent Juan Martin del Potro: "We have never faced each other in a Grand Slam final so that will be new for both of us.

  4. Post update

    Novak Djokovic in his post-match interview: "It felt great. I thought I came out of the blocks with great intensity and focus.

    "Kei Nishikori is one of the quickest movers on the court. He takes away a lot of your time but I thought I took the points and played really well.

    "The majors are the biggest events we have in tennis and obviously every player wants to perform their best in Grand Slams.

    "I have lost some big finals but also won some. Every time I come back to Arthur Ashe stadium I relive these memories and they give me a lot of strength.

    "It means the world to me. I am trying to be the best that I can be. I am working hard every day and I am trying to reach certain heights that I visualise every time I accomplish something big. I don't see any limits. I keep on going and hopefully you are enjoying my tennis."

    Djokovic was coming up with shots on the defence that were just unbelievable. He can turn points around so well. It eventually ground Nishikori down physically and mentally.

    *Djokovic 6-3 6-4 5-2 Nishikori

    Nishikori is putting up some final resistance. He gets to 30-30.

    But Djokovic is too good tonight. He forces his opponent wider and wider.

    Match point...

    Djokovic has that cushion and what a cushion it is. It's very plump!

  16. Djokovic breaks

    *Djokovic 6-3 6-4 5-2 Nishikori

    Novak Djokovic roars and punches the air. He knows he's almost there now. He has the double break. Nishikori looks like he could fall asleep in his chair. He rubs his forehand with thumb and forefinger.

    Djokovic is casually sitting with one leg up on the other.

  17. Post update

    Djokovic 6-3 6-4 4-2 Nishikori*

    The end is nigh it seems. Everyone seems very distracted now, even Nishikori.

    15-40. Two break points for Djokovic.

  18. Post update

    Djokovic 6-3 6-4 4-2 Nishikori*

    Nishikori may well be feeling the effects of the five-set marathon against Marin Cilic in the quarter-finals. He's two sets down here and Djokovic looks far, far fresher.

    Nishikori doesn't even move after making a return out wide and as a result Djokovic can just chip the ball into the open court.

  19. Post update

    *Djokovic 6-3 6-4 3-2 Nishikori

    Ever the grumpy perfectionist Novak screams at his box after missing out on a break point. His wife Jelena isn't too concerned. She's giggling about something.

    Nishikori takes the game to stay in touch but you wouldn't know it. It's a slow walk back to the chair.

  20. Post update

    Djokovic 6-3 6-4 3-1 Nishikori*

    Djokovic is sensing he can get back to the hotel in time for a movie.
