My goal is to play as long as possible: Rafael Nadal

Medvedev earns U.S. Open cheers during, after loss to Nadal

Medvedev earns U.S. Open cheers during, after loss to Nadal

The payoff was big: a 12th French Open title, a run to the semifinals at Wimbledon and another U.S. Open title.

"You guys were pushing me to prolong this match because you want to see more tennis". For us in our team, it's better that Rafa stays up there, but of course the tour needs exciting new players like Medvedev or the other guys.

And with how he acted. "Nineteen Grand Slam titles is something unbelievable".

"I mean, was wonderful match". It's an wonderful story. "All this summer is incredible for me". He even struggled with his motivation earlier this year after his latest series of injuries and considered calling off his clay court season altogether. "Daniil [Medvedev] is only 23 years old and the way he was able to fight and change the rhythm of the match was unbelievable".

Sure seemed it might, with Nadal ahead by two sets and a break in the third at 3-2, playing like "a beast out there", as the No. 5-seeded Medvedev put it.

Rafael Nadal was pushed all the way to win his 19th Grand Slam title against Daniil Medvedev at Flushing Meadows on Sunday night. "I will remember every moment of it", Medvedev said.

The Spaniard let out a mighty roar when the Russian's final return sailed long before falling on his back to soak up the cheers of an appreciative crowd.

"Amazing performance and he will learn from this to be stronger and stronger", said Gilles Cervara, Medvedev's coach.

The U.S. Open victory was also Nadal's second Grand Slam title of the year, after he won his 12th French Open crown in June. Nadal was the one looking the more threatening bringing up break points before finally breaking Medvedev for the first set. "You are the greatest in the history", Nadal reminded Federer while they stood on the dais then, even charmingly nuzzling up against the Swiss's shoulder.

She said officials had already interviewed the owner-operator of the dive boat, but didn't offer any further details. Authorities have been trying to determine the cause of the fire and why no one below the deck was able to escape.

I went out there, I gave everything I could, and I'm proud of myself.

.

It is anyone's guess who among the "Big Three" will finish their career with the most slams. I don't know what else to say.

"I lost, I think, four or five matches in a row". For a stretch, it felt as if Medvedev simply could not miss, and he finished with a 75-62 edge in winners.

Following his victory over Russia's Daniil Medvedev on Sunday, September 8, the Spanish tennis player returned home to Spain.

But he was contrite afterward and vowed to be a better person.

In reply, Nadal praised the 23-year-old for his fighting spirit.

So though Medvedev said he tends to be critical of himself, he had to agree with his new fans that applauded a job well done.

The way he combined his metronomic hitting from the back with forays to the net gave him enough break opportunities in the deciding set to have completed one of the greatest comebacks of all. "But I need to continue and I need to be better".
