Another year, another milestone. Continuing his quick climb up the rankings, Djokovic reached his first Grand Slam final at the U.S. Open in 2007. He had already snagged the No. 3 spot behind Rafael Nadal after a run of impressive performances that included semifinal appearances at the French Open and Wimbledon. Djokovic reached the U.S. Open final with surprising ease, taking down Carlos Moya and David Ferrer without losing a set in the quarters and semis. The fun came to an end against Roger Federer, who won the final 7–6 (7–4), 7–6 (7–2), 6–4 to take his 12th career Slam, and his fourth straight U.S. Open.
