On Monday, September 12th, Audemars Piguet’s newest brand ambassador Novak Djokovic won the US Open, the fourth prestigious Grand Slam tournament of the season.
The young tennis player is truly enjoying an exceptional season in 2011, winning ten tournaments to date, including the Australian Open and Wimbledon. After fighting hard in the US Open semis against Swiss champion Roger Federer, and losing the first two sets, he managed to win the following three sets to advance into major final.
The clash with Spanish player Rafael Nadal was eagerly anticipated. While the two have played 29 times in their career, Djokovic had beaten the Spanish player five times already in 2011. The No. 1-ranked Djokovic beat No. 2 Nadal 6-2, 6- 4, 6-7 (3), 6-1 to earn the first U.S. Open championship of his career and third Grand Slam trophy of 2011.
After an intense match, Novak Djokovic finally hoisted the trophy while proudly wearing an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver.
