Rafael Nadal, 33, nineteen going on twenty?

But Medvedev kept fighting, aided by a crowd inside Arthur Ashe Stadium that wanted to stay a little longer.

"An wonderful final - seemed that I had the match more or less, it has been one of the most emotional nights in my tennis career", Nadal said.

"This victory means a lot especially because of the way the match became so hard, so tough". The US Open was Nadal's 19th Grand Slam championship, and he won it two years faster than Federer won his 19th.

Daniil Medvedev insisted he had "no regrets" after his exhilarating fightback against Rafael Nadal in the US Open final ended in heartbreak.

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

. "So I was like ok anyway 'I have to fight for every ball - I have to see how it goes'". I know earlier in the tournament I said a bad thing, and now it's a good thing.

Each has a career Grand Slam, too.

On the ropes with Medvedev looking to deliver the knockout blow, Nadal showed once again why he is the game's greatest fighter and he lifted himself off the canvas to scrap his way to the title.

It is no secret that Nadal was once in awe of his great rival, even muting his own celebrations out of respect after he defeated Federer over five sets in the final of the 2009 Australian Open.

Overall, Medvedev gave tennis fans humor, humility and maturity in his speech, transforming from the guy who appeared to put up the middle finger during a match and relished in being a villain to someone who was able to win over the US Open crowd. Nadal rescued three Medvedev break chances to hold in the second game of the fifth set, fired a backhand volley victor to break Medvedev in the fifth game and seized a 5-2 edge when Medvedev hit an overhead smash long.

American Airlines mechanic accused of sabotaging flight over pay negotiations
American accuses the mechanics of undertaking illegal work slowdowns over the summer period which led to flights being cancelled. This week, both sides announced that they will resume negotiations September 16 in Washington, with help from a federal mediator.

The drama was not over yet.

Here's how different things are in the women's game: Bianca Andreescu's 6-3, 7-5 win against Serena Williams on Sunday made the 19-year-old Canadian the seventh first-time major champion in the past 11 events.

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.

Medvedev trailed Nadal by two sets to love before producing a rousing comeback, only to fade away to Nadal in the deciding set, and went some way to winning over the NY crowd, with whom he had clashed earlier in the tournament.

If nowhere else, Nadal will be a hot favourite at the French Open, where he has won a record 12 titles including the last three.

At 33, Nadal may have the edge on Federer, the 38-year-old Swiss crashing out of the US Open in the quarter-finals and failing to add to his Grand Slam titles since winning the 2018 Australian Open.

Two 23-year-olds reached the semi-finals, Medvedev and Matteo Berrettini, so maybe this was the time for a younger man to hold a trophy?

The Russian, who had spent a good part of the tournament playing the part of the U.S. Open villain for his on court antics, was welcomed to the court by a smattering of jeers.
