Rafael Nadal Wins U.S. Open


Nadal won his first U.S. Open title Monday night, making him the seventh man in tennis history to have earned a career Grand Slam (achieved by winning each Grand Slam tournament at least once). Nadal defeated Novak Djokovic 6-4, 5-7, 6-4, 6-2 in a match that was delayed due to thunderstorms a day after it was postponed by rain. “This is more than I dreamed,” Nadal said after the match. [CNN]
