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

...

Not only is Pliskova holding on, she's doing  it in style! Heading off an attack from the German's forehand, she has taken three straight points to equalize Kerber 3-3 in the second set. Looks like we may even have a decider brought on !

...

Quick and simple, clean shots from Angelique Kerber. No fancy flourishes, no bombastic shots. Just good clean tennis! 

...

Pliskova has been flawless at the net today, winning points consistently there. Kerber has managed holds, but right now her attempts near the net aren't working too well - a couple of net cords don't bode well for the German.

...
...

And she holds on - Kerber 2-1 it is, it is looking more and more difficult for the Czech ace to come back into the game 

...

and Kerber has saved  all her break points today 

...

And Deuce - can she break and make a game of it ?

...

and Pliskova holds on to her serve to keep the scoreline at 1-1, a couple of smashes on the net do indicate that she is still in the game against the future # 1

...

Some clinical stuff from Angie Kerber tonight has given her the first set, 6-3. 

...

A stunner of a drop shot from a confident Pliskova seals that point - and the game for her! She's still down a break of serve, though, and is on the back foot here still.

...

After a lot of back and forth for control, at some moments it looked a bit competitive. Kerber's running away with this match already, though.

...

Pliskova gives that backhand volley winner all she's got and it comes good! It's now advantage Pliskova as she attempts to break back.

...

Kerber's still up a break of serve, though, having broken Pliskova in the very first game of the match. So far, though, it's not looking too one-sided at all. A good contest on our hands?

...

And she holds! Karolina Pliskova is varying speeds and techniques here at Flushing Meadows and it's boding well. Although she missed out on breaking Kerber back by a whisker in the previous game, she's opened her account in tonight's final! 

...

Pliskova's trying some new things, and they worked...until now. The Czech had Kerber at break point but a beautiful volley by the German brings it to deuce! 

...
...

Game Kerber! Pliskova returns an aggressive double-handed backhand to Kerber but she's misjudged where to hit it, and it sails out of the line - giving the German the point and the game! 

...

Aaaand they're off! Pliskova opens the match but it's not started out too well for her! Kerber's now on her second break point - in the opening game! 

...

"She's played a couple of Grand Slam finals, so advantage is with her, but I will try my best," Pliskova says.

...

Players are now walking out on court! Pliskova, interviewed before the match starts, says that the advantage rests with Kerber. 

...

She also showed clinical control in her match against the big-serving Croat teen Ana Konjuh.

...

That was Pliskova's career-first WTA Premier title, and judging by her gameplay there will be a whole lot more.

...

Pliskova beat Kerber at the Cincinnati Masters final this year - with the German holding the runner-up trophy.

...

It's almost time to play! Kerber comes into this the favourite to win, but Pliskova is no shrinking violet!
