Rafa arrives in NY in the best possible manner. Let’s make a little refresh: in this year, after a very serious injury he came back winning in Sao Paulo, Acapulco, Indian Wells, Barcelona, Madrid, Rome, Roland Garros, Montreal, Cincinnati😨. He is again number two in the Atp World Ranking.
Rafa starts the last Grand Slam of the season defeating easily Harrison, Dutra Silva and Dodig in the first 3 rounds. In the 4th round he leaves the first set of the tournament to Kohlschreiber. In the QFs he plays an impressive match against Robredo, who defeated Federer in the previous round, losing only 4 games. In the Semifinal he finds the surprising Richard Gasquet, Rafa wins with few problems, 64 76 62 is the final score. In the Final Rafa finds again Novak Djokovic, already defeated in Montreal a short time ago. They offer us an incredible match, Rafa wins his second Us Open title and his 13th Grand Slam, winning with the score of 62 36 64 61!!😍❤🤩🏆
This is probably the best year of Rafa’s career, comparable only to 2010, in which Rafa won 3 Grand Slams...but we have also to consider the comeback from the injury. We have never seen something like this, it couldn’t be true that only few months ago it was in doubt if Rafa could have started to play at good levels again.
We can call it tenacity, willpower...but we prefer to call it like this: RAFAEL NADAL❤
