Rafael Nadal was just as impressive as he was in the semifinals at tonights final of the US Open. The Spanish legend didnt really have to play at his very best because Anderson isnt such a good player that Nadal had to. Anderson didnt even reach 40 in one single service game by Nadal until the very last game. So Rafa Nadal won as easy as expected against an opponent that really didnt have anything to come up with against the amazing Rafael Nadal. It was almost as onesided as yesterdays final between Sloane Stephens and Madison Keys. Bill Gates, Tiger Woods and many other celebrities did get to see history in the making anyway. Rafael Nadal won his third US Open crown and became one of the all time greats also in this Grand Slam…and he won his 16th Grand Slam overall. Nadal was almost perfect in the final. 16/16 net approaches won and only 11 unforced errors among some amazing stats in this final.
