U.S. Open 2012 Tennis Results: Andy Murray Wins Final In 5 Sets

The men's final at the 2012 U.S. Open faced No. 2 Novak Djokovic against No. 3 Andy Murray in what promised to be a match for the ages. Djokovic has won multiple Grand Slam championships, while Murray has had that first win elude him more times than he would like to count. After five sets of play, it was Andy Murray who came out victorious at Flushing Meadows.

Murray won the first set 7-6. The two battled back and forth until Murray finally pulled away 12-10 in tiebreakers. Murray then won the second set 7-5 after Djokovic tied it up late at 5-5.

The third set belonged to Djokovic. Clearly upset about letting the first two winnable sets get away form him, Joker, as he is known on the tour, dominated the by winning 6-2 with a strong serve and forehand.

The fourth set also went to Djokovic, 6-3. Djokovic forced the final set in just under 51 minutes behind three aces and 13 winners.

In the fifth decisive set, Murray jumped out to an early 3-0 lead and pushed the set to 5-2 before finally closing Djokovic out, 6-2.
