Tiger Woods In Rafa Nadal's US Open Box - Role Model For Comeback?

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

"The US Open feels a little bit like home", said Nadal, who has yet to lose to Anderson, now standing 5-0 in the series.

The Spaniard is appearing in his 23rd Grand Slam final, including third this season.

Rafa Nadal has always been king of the Paris clay but he was just as dominant on NY hardcourt on Sunday as he collected grand slam title number 16 with a clinical demolition of Kevin Anderson in the U.S. Open final.

Rafael Nadal believes the three major wins he needs to match Roger Federer's record haul of 19 men's singles titles in the Open Era represents a "big difference". Coincidentally, that's how many US Opens Woods has won.

Sure, the 6-foot-8 (2.03-meter) Anderson, the tallest Grand Slam finalist in history, is equipped with a booming serve - he's been broken only five times across 108 service games over the past two weeks - and so, in theory, the South African could make Nadal uncomfortable. 2016, 2014, have been years that I've had injuries and tough ones in the middle of the season.

It has not managed to reverse the situation and allowed Nadal to serve for the match at 5-4: the Spanish, despite a last burst of Anderson, did not miss his chance at the conclusion of its final on a last end victor.

"When I joined the team I knew that there was much more to come for Rafa, that if he stayed injury free and continued training with the same motivation, desire and confidence, that the tennis would come", former world number one Moya told the ATP Tour's official website. "While those things keep happening, I will be here".

"So it's been a very interesting year on the grand slam front".

Then Nadal sprung to new life in 2017, winning two of the year's four Grand Slams and looking as fit as ever - a flawless role model for Woods, offering both a roadmap and inspiration for a Woods comeback, if the golfer's body will let him travel that path. "Tennis is not all about the Grand Slams, so there are tournaments to come and I'm excited about this last part of the season". "Certainly will be very interesting to see what happens next year".

"Of course I am surprised", said Nadal.

"Well done for Roger that he is having an fantastic season, too, and well done for me because I'm having a great season, too".

"I'm very happy with all the things that are happening to me". Yeah, I have this trophy with me again here in NY.

"It's so important, winning on hard court again. Because us three, we still won a lot of things, and probably even Roger and me or Novak even much more than we ever dreamed". Being healthy, you see everything more possible, no?
