New York: World number one Novak Djokovic suffered his third loss in four consecutive trips to the US Open final on Sunday, but vowed his latest disappointment will be inspiration to prove his best is yet to come.

Spain's Rafael Nadal defeated the 26-year-old Serbian 6-2, 3-6, 6-4, 6-1 to collect his 13th Grand Slam crown and second title on the New York hardcourts, having also beaten Djokovic in the 2010 final to complete a career Grand Slam. (Also see: Match in pics)

Djokovic bounced back from that US Open near-miss to have a 2011 season that was among the greatest in tennis history, winning the US and Australian Opens and Wimbledon.
