Rafael Nadal lifts fourth US Open trophy, Canadian Bianca Andreescu made history beating Serena Williams

2019 Sep 9

World No. 2 Rafael Nadal has defeated Russian Daniil Medvedev in five epic sets 7-5, 6-3, 5-7, 4-6, 6-4 that lasted almost five hours to win another crown at Flushing Meadows.

With Sunday's victory, Rafael Nadal clinched his fourth US Open title following triumphs in 2010, 2013 and 2017 and now has 19 Grand Slam trophies overall.

The Spaniard is now one major championship away from tying Roger Federer's all-time record of 20 Grand Slam singles titles, edging first-time grand slam finalist Daniil Medvedev in an epic US Open final to earn his 19th major title.


Canadian teenager Bianca Andreescu produced a fearless performance to stun Serena Williams in straight sets 6-3, 7-5 in the US Open final on Saturday to claim her first Grand Slam title.

Ranked 208th a year ago, Andreescu becomes the first Canadian in history to win a Grand Slam singles title with her straight-set victory over former World No. 1 Serena Williams in an hour and 39 minutes.

Andreescu, a 19-year old Canadian tennis player of Romanian origin, is the first player born in the 2000s to win a major and the first teenager champ since Russian Maria Sharapova claimed the US Open 13 years ago.

World No. 8 Serena Williams won her first US Open title 20 years ago, before Andreescu was even born. Although the American has lost her fourth Grand Slam final in a row, she still remains in the hunt for an elusive 24th career Grand Slam win to tie Margaret Court’s record of major singles titles.


Jamie Murray and Bethanie Mattek-Sands defeated Taiwan's Chan Hao-Ching and New Zealand's Michael Venus in straight sets 6-2 6-3 to successfully defend their US Open mixed doubles title.

Seven-time Grand Slam doubles winner, Jamie Murray became the first man to win three consecutive US Open mixed doubles titles in the Open Era.


Belgium's Elise Mertens and Belarusian Aryna Sabalenka have won the US Open women's doubles final after beating Victoria Azarenka and Ashleigh Barty 7-5 7-5 at Arthur Ashe Stadium in an hour and 37 minutes. The duo captured their first Grand Slam title on Sunday.


The reigning Wimbledon champions and Colombian top seeds, Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah, has defeated Marcel Granollers and Horacio Zeballos 6-4 7-5 to claim the 2019 US Open men's doubles title.
