Nadal cruises into US Open final

US Open: Hunger and passion sees Rafael Nadal's appetite continue unabated Rafael Nadal wins his 16th Grand Slam title
Damon Campbell | 12 September, 2017, 00:41

This year soon after the 31-year-old Nadal won the US Open, one would reckon that age-old rivalry between Federer and Nadal is back on track.

Federer won the season's other two Slam trophies at the Australian Open, beating Nadal in the final, and Wimbledon, illustrating the two Grand Slam greats' enduring power.

Rafa Nadal has always been king of the Paris clay but he was just as dominant on NY hardcourt on Sunday as he collected grand slam title number 16 with a clinical demolition of Kevin Anderson in the U.S. Open final.

A young 22-year-old Federer won the Wimbledon in 2003.Similarly a 19-year-old Nadal won his first French open during 2005.There isn't a single player who is here to chellenge the elite five of Federer, Nadal, Novak, Murray and Wawrinka. Stephens, 83rd in the world, has won with an impressive serenity the fifth title of his career, by far the most important, which guarantees him a gain of $ 3.7 million. Anderson powered 10 aces compared to one from Nadal, but he made 40 unforced errors to just 11 from Nadal. "I do my way, he does his way", said Nadal. There were many key moments that enabled Nadal to display some of his most awesome and blistering tennis in a mostly comfortable three sets victory. Now I am not that much surprised. I really don't think much about these kind of things. Soderling had never won even a third-round match at a major before that tournament.

Winning two majors and making three Grand Slam finals in a single season would be a special accomplishment and accolade for most players, but what does this serious resurgence in 2017 mean to the man that has already accomplished so much over his illustrious career?

"So it's been a very interesting year on the grand slam front".

Finish off the year's Grand Slam success is really incredible, " pointed out Nadal has pocketed a cheque of $ 3.7 million, bringing its total gain to 90 million. I have a great team and a great family that supports me and believes in me. As I said before, I just can say thanks to the people that helps me every day.

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

"There are things that probably Roger and me share - that is passion for what we are doing, passion for tennis, passion for the competition and the spirit of improvement all the time". That is a lot of positive energy for me. "I still want to compete and still feel the nerves every time that I go on court".
