Federer stays at 16 and five US Opens in a row, while Juan Martin Del Potro, the Argentinian giant who humiliated Rafael Nadal in the Semi Final yesterday, wins his first career grand slam in a huge five setter in Queens, New York. Federer was dominant in the first set, winning it 6:3. Del Potro was able to break Federer once in the second set after losing his serve, and was able to beat Federer in the tie break, winning the second set 7:6.

Del Potro crushed him in the fifth set, on way to his first career grand slam, before his 21st birthday.
