Rafael Nadal Wins His 3rd U.S. Open Grand Slam
By SENATUS Magazine | 12 September 2017

Reigning World No. 1 Rafael Nadal clinched his third US Open title and 16th Grand Slam crown on Sunday with a 6-3, 6-3, 6-4 rout of South African giant Kevin Anderson. The Spaniard who prevailed in New York in 2010 and 2013, added the 2017 title in addition to his record 10th French Open won earlier in June.

Rival Roger Federer won the season’s other two Slams beating Nadal in the Australian Open final, and Wimbledon, sparking a debate on which of the two is truly the #GOAT Greatest of All Time.

Nadal’s Grand Slam tally is just three behind Federer’s record 19.

For Nadal, it was his fifth title of the year and 74th of his career while the $3.7mn (3.07 euros) winner’s prize boosted his earnings to a shade under $90mn.

"It’s a very special two weeks for me. It’s unbelievable what’s happened this year after some seasons with serious injuries and not playing very well," added Nadal.
