Juan Martin del Potro dethroned Federer as the US Open champion, ending his five-year reign as the men’s best worldwide tennis player earning his first major title in a come-from-behind 3-6, 7-6 (5), 4-6, 7-6 (4), 6-2 victory.

It was the first five set men’s final since 1999, when Andre Agassi defeated Todd Martin and one of the biggest US Open matches. It was Del Potro’s first career victory over Federer in seven matches. The new champion, with just 20 years old, became the second Argentine in history to win the US Open, joining Guillermo Vilas, who won in 1977.

He dropped onto his back, looking like a towering snow angel in search of the first fall signs of winter flurries and later gave a tearful thanks to his family and friends back in Tandil.

“My dream is done. It’s over,” said Del Potro, who became the first Argentine male to win the title since Guillermo Vilas in 1977. “I will go home with a trophy, and it’s the best sensation ever in my life.
