Forecasts on Spaniard Rafael Nadal, world number one, came true and he proclaimed himself as the new US Open champion by defeating South African Kevin Anderson, twenty-eighth-seeded, by 6-8 6-3 6-4.
In addition, he consolidated his position of number one of the world-wide classification in the ATP.
Nadal, 31, who won his third US Open title after 2010 and 2013, becomes the third player in the history of the last Grand Slam tournament that reached before the 20 years old, of the 30 years and after that age.
The tennis player from Manacor, who played his twenty-third Grand Slam final and fourth at the Open, won for the first time since 2010 two titles in major tournaments after being a champion at Roland Garros.
Now, Nadal has 16 Grand Slam titles on his hands, only surpassed by the 19 of Roger Federer, who also this season won another two, the Australian Open and Wimbledon.
The Spanish tennis player gave a whole lesson of play and superiority to Anderson, who won for the fifth time in the same duels they have maintained as professionals, the last had been in the past tournament in Barcelona, where he won in the eighth (6-3 and 6-4).
Nadal, who 12 months ago struggled to overcome all doubts about his future that generated serious wrist injuries, and after two years without having a Grand Slam title, resurfaced in 2017 with another dream season that culminated in a “magical” and brilliant way at the Arthur Ashe central track in Flushing Meadows, where it only took two hours and 27 minutes to win.
