Nadal crushes Anderson for 3rd US Open title, 16th Grand Slam

US Open: Hunger and passion sees Rafael Nadal's appetite continue unabated

Rafael Nadal delivered a masterful performance on Sunday, capturing his 16 Grand Slam title with a 6-3, 6-3, 6-4 win over Kevin Anderson in the U.S. Open final, his second major title of the year and another confirmation that 2017 belonged to he and Roger Federer.

"To close the Grand Slam year winning at NY feels good, that's one of the events that's really full of high energy". Finish off the year's Grand Slam success is really incredible, " pointed out Nadal has pocketed a cheque of $ 3.7 million, bringing its total gain to 90 million.

He defeated Kevin Anderson of South Africa. I believed on the work, on the diary work, all the time.

There had been a lot of alterations and improvistaions in both Federer's and Nadal's game.This had helped them a lot to dominate most of the events and tours they had taken part in.It is nice to know there is a lot going with their strategies.The modifications made in Rafa's backhand against del Potro is an example.

Nadal's victory saw him again close to within three grand slam titles of Federer at the top of the all-time list - how different that would look had the Spaniard not the Swiss edged their dramatic battle in the Australian Open final.

Nadal dropped three sets over the two weeks and never needed more than four to advance.

"I can't thank him enough for all the things he did for me", Nadal said of his uncle. Two problems with that: Anderson is not usually a serve-and-volleyer and so is no expert at that tactic; Nadal is superb at summoning passing shots at extreme speeds and angles, especially when facing the sort of target provided by the 6-foot-8 (2.03-meter) Anderson, the tallest Grand Slam finalist in history.

"That involved a lot of people, and because of different styles, different characters, and we played for the most important things for such a long time, I think that was the great promotion for our sport", Nadal told a news conference. Being healthy, you see everything more possible, no?

"When you get (an) injury", Nadal said, "then (it) seems like the season is a disaster".
