The wait is over. After rain dominated the second week of the U.S. Open, the anticipated men's final between Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal has arrived. The match marks the first time the top two seeds will face off in a U.S. Open final since Pete Sampras defeated Andre Agassi in 1995. Djokovic has won five straight against Nadal, on three different surfaces and all of them in the finals. Can former No. 1 Nadal snap the streak? Or will Djokovic continue his reign in one of the most remarkable seasons in history? The match is set for 4 p.m. ET, so come join in on the discussion with Courtney Nguyen and the SI.com tennis team in the U.S. Open men's final live blog.
