On Sunday, Stan Wawrinka lost the match by 6-7 (1), 6-4, 7-5, 6-3. Djokovic lost 3 matches out of 17 in US Open.

"I lost my nerves in the important moments. He kept his cool. I think that's what decided the match," said Djokovic.

"I guess sometimes it happens, even though you have the experience and know what to do. Just the heat of the moment and importance of the match, I guess, was too strong for me at certain periods of the match. Just if you lose your cool, the match can go away." He added.

In ATP Rankings, he has achieved 12 major titles and has won various Grand Slam matches. During his journey, he has even received $100 million in career prize money in tennis.

In the third round of the match which took place at Wimbledon, Djokovic had won 30 Grand Slam Matches and became the third man to secure four major titles in Tennis.  

"He was more courageous, because he stepped in and played aggressive," Djokovic said, "where I was kind of more waiting for things to happen."

In the US Open tournament, Djokovic has won atleast 50 percent of the matches while against Wawrinka, he has only won 3 out of 22.

"Terrible conversion of the break points," Djokovic said. "Just terrible from my side."

Novak Djokovic won the titles in year 2011 and 2015 but he lost the match against Federer in 2007.

"Winning two out of four Grand Slams is a pretty good year, and playing another final – I have no complaints. Obviously I wish that I could win another title, but this is what it is. You have to shake hands and accept the loss from a better player and move on," Djokovic said.

"It's not the first time, it's not the last time I'm going to lose a match. Big match," he continued. "Hopefully I can learn from it. Hopefully I can get better, because that's the cycle of life, I guess, for us athletes." He added.
