One Wawrinka fan tweeted the video of a remarkable rally between the two tennis stars.

It shows them engaged in a short rally of long shots, falling just within the back line. Then the two players brought the action further up the court, until they were right up close to the net, where both players were forced to make returns at full stretch, before Wawrinka was finally able to send the ball down past Djokovic's right hand side, and safely within the court boundary to win the point.

The victory sees Wawrinka lift his very first US Open title, and the third Grand Slam title of his career.

You can watch the incredible rally in the video below.

It is not the first time Wawrinka has triumphed over Djokovic in a Grand Slam competition.

He defeated the Serb in the final of the 2015 French Open, winning by a scoreline of 4–6 6–4 6–3 6–4.

In all three of his Grand Slam title victories, Wawrinka has had to overcome the world number one seed in the final stage. 

In 2014, Wawrinka took on then world number one seed Rafael Nadal in the final of the Australian Open, beating him 6-3 6-2 3-6 6-3.

Coincidentally, Wawrinka beat Djokovic in the quarter-final stage of the 2014 Australian Open in a match that went the distance.
