US Open: Nadal beats Kevin Anderson to win

Rafael Nadal claims US Open title after dominant straight sets win

Rafael Nadal claims US Open title after dominant straight sets win

And he once again closed to within three of Roger Federer's all-time record of 19 Grand Slam singles titles, while the "Big Four" can now lay claim to 46 of the last 51 majors. That is a lot of positive energy for me.

Nadal has more US Open titles than Djokovic, an equal number of Wimbledon titles, and the Olympic gold medal that Djokovic has yet to win.

The big favorite, who won her 23rd final in a Grand Slam, dominated the guest-surprise, 32nd in the ATP rankings, which had never exceeded until then the quarter-finals of a major tournament.

Nadal was asked what this trophy meant in terms of chasing down Federer's tally of 19 singles majors, but the Spaniard offered some fresh perspective on what he feels this win means in the present and in the future. The spinning, back-to-the-net returns of serves that darted in at him at more than 130 miles per hour (210 kph) and helped him break Anderson four times.

On Saturday, Nadal swept past Argentina's Juan Martin del Potro, to set up a US Open final against Anderson. Another difference-maker: Nadal never faced a break point, although that was more a reflection of his talent once the ball was in play than any particularly dominant serving.

The first set was important for me.

"I have to work as hard as I can and the main thing now is to try to keep working harder and harder to improve, because I still have a lot of things to improve", said Rublev.

It has not managed to reverse the situation and allowed Nadal to serve for the match at 5-4: the Spanish, despite a last burst of Anderson, did not miss his chance at the conclusion of its final on a last end victor.

New York - American Sloane Stephens has won 24 of its first title of Grand Slam in its first final by beating her compatriot Madison Keys, 16th, world, 6-3, 6-0, Saturday in New York.

Better yet, while his last residence on cement was in January 2014 (Doha), "Rafa" has shown that, as in his best years, nothing resisted it, and that his poor season in 2016, disrupted by an injury to an elbow, was no more than a distant memory. I think I did the right work, I believed in the work... "That's probably why I still have chances to compete in this sport and to do it well". 'I just do my way. Let's see when we finish.

'It's true that I am 31, I am not 25, but I still have the passion and the love for the game.

'I'm very happy with all the things that are happening to me, winning this title again. "I have this trophy with me".
