In the end, Nadal needed three championship points to finally see off his opponent after making no mistake with his second attempt to serve for the title. The last time someone won the Open after being down 2-0 was Pancho Gonzales in 1949. Although the first thing that comes to everyone's mind is Federer's failure to capitalize on 40-15, double-championship point on his own serve at 8-7, the quality sustained for most of the four-hour and 57-minute thriller (other than Djokovic's second-set walkabout) can not be forgotten.
Victory Sunday moved Nadal to within one Grand Slam title of Federer, who, at 38, is more than four years older.

Nadal says he wants to finish his career at No. 1 in the Grand Slam standings - ahead of Federer and Novak Djokovic, looming in third place now with 16 - but also insists he won't base his happiness on how it all shakes out in the end.
Medvedev broke Nadal's serve in the final game of both the third and fourth sets, and even when it seemed he was out of it in the fifth he refused to give in easily. Nadal said. "Very tough mentally and physically, too". Rafa is always seeking them out, though, and he tries to make the majority at this point in his career. Apart from his final appearance in US Open where he nearly pulled off a miraculous comeback from being two sets down to eventually lose in five sets to Nadal, he won Cincinnati Masters as well as was the losing finalist at the Montreal Masters & the Washington Open. He's won majors in three sets. Joining me on Skype now to talk about last night's entertaining end to an entertaining tournament is Jon Wertheim of Sports Illustrated. "He's proven that once again". Federer is at 20, Nadal now at 19 and Djokovic at 16. "I am playing tennis because I love to play tennis", Nadal said afterwards. "Ever since then, I've been trying to have a very positive outlook on everything". Somehow, he sits just one ahead of Rafael Nadal and five ahead of Novak Djokovic in the list of all-time Grand Slam wins. The journey just took more detours than anyone could have anticipated.

"This was a match we couldn't afford to lose". Daniil Medvedev turned it from a one-sided affair into one of the best US Open finals in memory.
"His summer was one of the best summers I ever saw", Nadal said. The other two players - Nadal and Djokovic - play well and are close to the record but will miss it. For Roig, Nadal's true colors ultimately showed in the fourth and fifth sets when he was forced to dig deep in order to pull through. "He unleashes everything in his arsenal when it matters most. He started hitting hard especially on the forehand and he faced a wall". "His groundstrokes were on target, and he found another gear in order to win".
