NFT: US Open: Mens' Final (Spoiler)

Stan in LA : 9/10/2017 6:59 pm
Sweet 16 for Rafa in an unpredictable year for normally a predictable sport. 2 Majors each for Rafa and Federer. Who would have guessed a year ago?

With Rafa playing at this level, and 5 years younger than Federer, will he reach 20 or more? Time will tell...
its not his fault

but other than Delpo who did he beat to get there? Its an asterisk for me
Great achievement for the two of them.

Both careers looked to be past their primes, but great champions, they came back as good as ever.
I felt bad for Kevin Anderson

He was clearly out classed by Nadal.

Go look up some of the finals opponents for Federer in his early years. Federer is tr GOAT but every one of those titles counts and he's had quite a few really weak opponents.

Agreed. You can only play who's on the other side of the court. And Nadal has beaten the best on many occasions. Great win for him.
dont get me wrong

hes one of the greatest ever and im a big fan of his. I just wouldve liked to see him beat a few names onthe way to the trophy.
he doesn't make up the draw, a win is a win is a win
