Angelique Kerber beats Karolina Pliskova 6-3, 4-6, 6-4

Although Kerber has won her second Grand Slam, it would be unfair to say Pliskova was a silent rival. She did not go down without a fight, hitting 5 aces to Kerber's single one all match.

Angelique Kerber wins the 2016 US Open 

...

CHAMPIONSHIP POINT! Kerber, no points conceded, hits a beautiful forehand to WIN the 2016 US Open! 

...

Angelique Kerber leads 5-4 in the deciding set. It's almost time for her to be crowned the US Open 2016 champion - or is there still some fight left in Pliskova?

...

Karolina Pliskova falters a bit. Leading 40-0 she looks set to take that game - and a set lead - but she's really been playing an error-strewn game.

...

Kerber holds on to her serve to lead 4-3 in the final set!

...

And Kerber breaks Pliskova to even the final set at 3-3, and the World # 1 shows why she is ranked #1!

...

Angelique Kerber had been feeling the heat going into this game here at Flushing Meadows. She's clawing her way back now, and her comeback game was ridiculousy strong - she won without taking a single point! 

...

And the unforced errors are rolling in for Kerber as she is feeling the pressure, Pliskova goes up 3-1 in the final set

...

Pliskova has been steadily growing in confidence with every passing game and has a huge advantage having broken Kerber, It looks like the Czech might be the one smiling at the end of this riveting game

...

Kerber is feeling the nerves with Pliskova breaking her to go 2-1 up in the final set ... What a comeback...

...

And Pliskova on the net again, forcing Kerber to give a weak return 15-40 , 2 break points for the Czech

...

And Another gorgeous backhand winner from the Czech to hold on Serve 1-1 it is ...

...

oooh and a beautiful cross court backhand winner from Pliskova to go 30-0 on her serve 

...

And Pliskova has been a monster on the Net, winning majority of the points from the net

...

So we have Mr. Wimbledon of the 90's Boris Becker rooting for teutonic pride and Kerber holds her serve to go 1-0 up in the final set

...

The non-showy Pliskova has dug deep after losing the first set and held nerve, serve and a whole lot more. She's going to force a third, deciding set here.

...

It's her first EVER Grand Slam final and Karolina Pliskova has just scalped a set off the World No. 1!

...

Kerber holds her serve 5-4 it is with Pliskova serving for the set, If she holds on to her serve and takes the set, it promises to be an entertaining final set, 

...

And Kerber double faults at Advantage, Are we looking at a change in fortunes here, either way it has been an entertaining match

...

Well on a different note Pliskova has made 28 unforced errors to Kerber's 8 unforced errors, Big game nerves anyone?

...

And she holds on - Pliskova is growing into the game- beautifully constructed points but on the other hand Kerber has held on to all break points except one which might decide this set 

...

A beautifully controlled rally by Pliskova, one more point she holds on to her serve and will be looking to break Kerber for the set
