Rafael Nadal beats Kevin Anderson to win the US Open final
12 September 2017, 02:23 | Christie Tate
Quiet farewell for Toni Nadal as Rafa wins in New York
Federer remains at the top of the men's all-time Grand Slam list with 19 titles, three ahead of Nadal, who has now won 10 French titles, three USA, two Wimbledon and one Australian. He got his down the line forehands out immediately in the second set, opening the court that much more and making himself unpredictable for del Potro. An hour later, dressed in black with pink Nike trimmings, the Spaniard had defeated Kevin Anderson.
That only made the score 4-3, but the statistics were telling: Anderson had 21 unforced errors, Nadal just four.
"They're two passionate individuals who are committed to playing competitive tennis". During the commencement of the season, Nadal's ranking had slumped to ninth while Federer was at a distant 16!
Moya said: "We tried to get Rafa to be more aggressive, not spend so much time on defence".
Volleying requires the most athletic talent of any shot in tennis, and Nadal won all 16 points at net against Anderson.
Nadal's baseline game remained unbreakable.
We look back on what has been another drama-filled tournament across the pond with great matches, incredible points, surprising outcomes, and plenty to talk about. "Whether he returned 6'8" Anderson's booming serve from close to the baseline or nearly 20 feet behind it near the line judges, he found ways to break serve four times against the South African, who had lost only five of his 109 service games going into the final.
Only Nadal, Pete Sampras and Ken Rosewall have managed the feat of winning Grand Slam titles in their teens, 20s and 30s.
THE most striking image of finals weekend for me was Sloane Stephens holding the trophy aloft with the most glittering smile we witnessed all year in tennis.
Men's tennis appears to have been transported into the past this year.
Anderson continued to fight, but Nadal proved to be too much, breaking again and taking the first set, 6-3. I believed on the work, on the diary work, all the time.
"I know that I could have done some big things here".
When he said Nadal "never goes away", and that he "brings that high energy every single point", and that, "Anytime you leave a ball hanging for him, he's ready and able to take advantage of it", Anderson, at 0-5 against Nadal, sounded like many a Nadal opponent these last, long, 13 Grand Slam seasons.
Nadal had a 6-3, 6-3, 6-4 win over South African playerKevin Anderson.
" It is a very special year, no?"
Toni has been famously tough with his nephew, never basking, always focusing on how to be better. "So that's impossible to recover in the same year".
"It has been an unbelievable season after a couple of years with some troubles, injuries, tough moments", Nadal said. I'm very happy to be back.
"Since the beginning of the year it has been very emotional, and to close the Grand Slam year by winning in NY, I just can say thank you to life for that opportunity and thank you to my team and my family and everybody".
