NEW YORK (AP) — Third seed Stan Wawrinka wore down Novak Djokovic and knocked off the defending champion 6-7, 6-4, 7-5, 6-3. Wawrinka had dropped 19 of his previous 23 meetings with Djokovic before capturing his first U.S. Open crown and third Grand Slam title. The 31-year-old Wawrinka is the oldest U.S. Open men’s champion since Ken Rosewall was 35 in 1970.
