An elbow injury in 2003 prevented his expected French Open debut that year and a stress fracture in one ankle kept him out of Roland Garros and Wimbledon in 2004. Seven months down the road, Djokovic has not only fully recovered from the injury but also become a dominant force he was once winning 21 of his last 22 matches claiming titles in Wimbledon and Cincinnati enroute to the finals of the US Open.

However, no one can begrudge del Potro his second Grand Slam final.

But, Djokovic has been through his own journey and a third US Open title would complete his return to the top echelons of the sport and serve as a warning that the Djokovic dynasty was never over, it was just on a brief hiatus.

The third seed, at a career-high ranking of three, is relishing being back at this level after all his injury problems and is hoping to go one better than at Wimbledon.

And he will start the heavy favourite, boasting a 14-4 record over the Argentine who will be playing in just his second final at the Slams. So I don't know what can happen in a couple of days or in a couple of weeks.
