Third seed Stan Wawrinka rose to the occasion once again to beat top-seeded defending champion Novak Djokovic 6-7(1) 6-4 7-5 6-3 and win the U.S. Open on Sunday for the third grand slam title of his career.

The 31-year-old Swiss, who defeated Djokovic on his way to winning the 2014 Australian Open and 2015 French Open, denied the world number one a third grand slam title this year following his wins in Australia and France. Thanks to his victory, Wawrinka also became the oldest US Open winner since Ken Rosewall in 1970.

Twitter was quick to congratulate the Swiss on his impressive victory and here are some of the tweets:

The Indian connection was also mentioned.

Last but not the least, a tweet from the champ himself.
