AND HE WINS! Stan Wawrinka wins the US Open title 6-7, 6-4, 7-5, 6-3!
Wawrinka is now serving for the US Open title.
It appears Djokovic's toe is bleeding. Doesn't even look like he's in this anymore, but making a valiant effort to finish the match.
ANOTHER medical timeout for Djokovic, his second in three games. Thank goodness he's not a racehorse. #USOpen— Ben Rothenberg (@BenRothenberg) September 12, 2016

Two games away from the US Open title is Stan Wawrinka. Talk about stamina! Djokovic does not look himself, though, and there's something to be said for the fact that he's now barely able to move.
The fourth set sees Wawrinka lead 4-1 after saving break points with alarming consistency for Djokovic. Funnily, the Swiss has been excellent on his own break point conversion tonight.
The World No. 1 is down 1-3 in the fourth set and struggling to move although he's back on court.
Hard luck for Novak DJokovic right now. He's called for a Medical Time-out as he is struggling to go on.
Djokovic has had several opponents retire in the run up to the finals - and now with his injury, it looks like he could add to that list! Let's hope it is not an injury for the World No. 1.
Wawrinka leads 3-0 in the fourth and he's STILL got energy left. Amazing from the Swiss. Djokovic is clearly in pain. Cramps? Injury? One can't say right now.
And already leading Djokovic a set, Wawrinka's taken a break in the fourth. And Djokovic is hobbling around court cramping seriously.
Some really, really long rallies in this game. And Stan Wawrinka, take a bow. He leads 2 sets to 1 here and Djokovic is off-colour now.
Wawrinka has a 4-3 lead in the third set, and Djokovic is getting aggressive. He's pushing the game further now, and there's a full-stretch split to make that shot!
Wawrinka now leads 3-2, and somehow the energy seems to have shifted a bit towards Djokovic.
It's the Stan Wawrinka show through set 3 so far. He's leading 3-1 and at game point now. A man on a mission.
Wawrinka has taken Djokovic to seven break points so far and broken five times. 5/7 BP conversion is strong from the Swiss, while Djokovic is at 2 from 11. Not the best statistic for the World No. 1 to look at right now.
Wawrinka was down 0-30 and now he's at break point. And he BREAKS with a superb volley. A great passing shot and Stan Wawrinka leads 2-0 in the third set.
There's a bit of a scare but Wawrinka holds for a 1-0 lead in the third set and it's quite clear we have a contest on our hands.
UPDATE: Novak Djokovic receives a warning for 'racquet abuse'. This means the Serb is losing his cool when he really shouldn't be. He's pushing for the break now.
40-40 in the first game of the third set and Djokovic tries to hit it past his foot, sending it careening long. Wawrinka loses that advantage as he nets a shot, though.
A fantastic point from Novak Djokovic staves off that set point - but not for long! Djokovic sends the next shot wide and that gives Wawrinka the second set 6-4!
Set point Stan Wawrinka!
WOW that was close! Djokovic grunting, Stan staring, and that's a brilliant point that's JUST on the line (and no John McEnroe on court)...
Djokovic has held his service game, and now there's some exquisite shot placement from Wawrinka who is varying his net approaches. And he's got a hold to love, leading 5-4.
