Rafael Nadal sweeps to US Open win
    2017-September-12  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

RAFAEL NADAL won his 16th Grand Slam title by sweeping Kevin Anderson 6-3, 6-3, 6-4 in the U.S. Open on Sunday.

It’s the third U.S. Open title for Nadal, who won two majors this year for the first time since 2013.

The 28th-seeded Anderson was bidding to become the lowest-ranked U.S. Open champion ever.

It was a comfortable final for Nadal, in his 23rd Grand Slam final facing an opponent competing in his first.

In a match lasting a little under two and a half hours, Nadal did not face a single break point and lost just 15 points on his serve throughout.

It was a tale of serve and volley for Nadal, who was at his blistering best in New York as Anderson, standing at over two meters tall, was unable to deal with the Spaniard’s movement.

Nadal would clinch the title on his second match point, with the final game delayed due to shouts from the crowd, dragging Anderson out wide before finishing at the net.

“It’s just unbelievable what happened this year,” said Nadal.

Nadal and Roger Federer have ended this extraordinary Grand Slam season with honors even, both men having started it with doubts about their long-term future after finishing their 2016 campaigns early because of injury.

Federer won the Australian Open and Wimbledon, while Nadal won his 10th French Open title and his third U.S. Open and recaptured the world No. 1 ranking from Andy Murray.

This victory, meanwhile, was an appropriate way for Nadal to finish his last Grand Slam tournament with his uncle, Toni Nadal, as his travelling coach.

While Toni will still play a big part in his nephew’s career from his base at the world No. 1’s academy in their native Majorca, the coaching reins will be handed over next year to Carlos Moya, who was here sitting alongside Toni. (SD-Agencies)
