Nadal won his fourth U.S. Open championship and the 19th Grand Slam chasing Federer after being chased two sets in a row, missing two points in the final set and winning a serve game.
After nearly five hours of ups and downs, Nadal defended the hegemony of the three giants. After Medvedev received the serve and went out of bounds, Nadal could finally relax and enjoy a moment on the ground. Before the awards ceremony, the 19 Grand Slam champions of Nadal were shown on the big screen, bringing tears to the eyes of the Spanish King, who was already unable to calm down.
At the awards ceremony, Nadal admitted that the final was a tough one: It was a really tough one. It was a wonderful game because Medvedev played very hard and his ability to change the rhythm was amazing. His summer belongs to the best performance I have ever witnessed in my career. Its amazing to be in the top four of the world at the age of 23.
Usually I put this in the end, but now I want to say in advance: Thank the fans on the scene, you have been supporting me for two weeks, the atmosphere is very beautiful. This victory means a lot to me. Its a tough game. Ive been really nervous. Until now, its hard for me to calm down and Im a bit incoherent.
Nor did Nadal forget his team: Thank you, my family and team. I know youve been suffering in the stands for a long time. Anyway, you are all supporting me. Without you, there would be no me now.
Finally, the Spaniard was unable to hide his desire to defend his title next year before the trophy was handed out: I hope to see you here again next year.
