U.S. Open 2012 Scores: Novak Djokovic Wins Third Set, 6-2

After losing the first two sets, Novak Djokovic has beaten Andy Murray in the third set of the U.S. Open men's final, 6-2, to extend the match. Murray had an opportunity to put away his first ever Grand Slam championship in the set, but Djokovic has pushed the final to a fourth set.

Murray actually won the first game of the third set, but Djokovic would respond by winning the next two and six of seven games to take the set. After looking somewhat uneven in the first two sets, Djokovic appeared more comfortable in putting away the third set to avoid defeat.

At the moment, Djokovic clearly has the momentum entering the fourth set. Murray appeared to be on his way to the championship after taking the first game of the third set, but Djokovic has rebounded to put himself in a position to rally for the win.
