  • Daniil Medvedev Praises Rafael Nadal After Spaniard Clinches US Open 2019 Title Says'The Way You Are Playing Is a Big Joke

"It went far, but unfortunately it didn't go my way".

Nadal is now the first man in the Open Era (since 1968) to win five majors since turning 30. He did so after Federer, 38, and Djokovic, 32, exited the last Slam of the 2010s with injuries.

Opponents and fans both know what they will get from the Spaniard each and every time he steps on court - relentless effort and refusal to surrender.

In 2017, Nadal (French Open, US Open) and Federer (Australian Open, Wimbledon) won two majors apiece, while Roy Emerson (Australian Open, French Open) and John Newcombe (Wimbledon, US Open) did the same in 1967.

In short, the king was emotional as hell especially because officials made a decision to chuck a montage of Rafa's Grand Slam wins on the big screen.

Nadal has said the chase is a motivation, but not an obsession.

"You guys were pushing me to prolong this match because you want to see more tennis and because of you guys I was fighting like hell".

Nadal is on a roll and looking healthier than his fellow living legends.

Medvedev entered his first career Grand Slam final on a 12-match win streak. An exhausted Nadal laid down on the court following the match-winning point.

The US Open has been held since 1881, it is the fourth and the final Grand Slam tournament of the tennis season, played at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in NY. That earned him a code violation from umpire Damien Dumusois, prompting Medvedev to toss his tennis racquet at the direction of the umpire and argue the decision.

Nadal fell to the floor as the ball flew beyond the baseline, and was then visibly emotional when a montage of all his major titles was played on the big screens at Arthur Ashe Stadium. It began chanting "Med-ve-dev". But the No. 5-seeded Medvedev, a 23-year-old from Russian Federation, did not go gently into the night.

"I can't just think about Grand Slams, no?"

He came the closest of any man in the next generation to breaking through thus far.

"The last three hours of the match have been very, very intense, no?"

Nadal had raced to a two-set lead against the Russian fifth seed, winning the first set 7-5 and the second set 6-3.

Nadal was a heavy favorite going into Sunday's final. "[You] have all unbelievable energy ... it's just been incredible and it's been a pleasure and an honour to play in front of you in this awesome stadium". Normally, I take it for the last thing but today it's going to be the first thing, thank you very, very much everybody in this stadium, [you] have been unbelievable energy. As it stands, Federer leads the way with 20, Nadal is next in line with 18 and Novak Djokovic has 16.
