  1. Well, what do you know… The ATP rankings are up….

    Novak…. Someone named Rafa is knocking on your door for the number 1 spot….
    Roger….. Someone named Rafa is knocking on your door for a tie for #20 in most Grand Slams…

    1. Novak Djokovic – 9,865 pts
    2. Rafael Nadal – 9,225 pts
    3 Roger Federer – 7,130 pts
    4. Daniil Medvedev – 5,235 pts

    Our boy is not done yet…

    Get some rest, stay healthy and enjoy this amazing victory, With the wedding coming up who knows when he will play competitively again… But that will come….

    I just love that he’s inching closer to number 1 and that it must be driving Novak crazy and Roger’s Grand
    Slam record needs to be tied, and then broken….

    And Rafa is just the guy to do it!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    All in due time…..

  2. Congratulations to Rafa for winning his 19th grand slam๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

    It seems like he will skip Beijing and Shanghai which is understandable. Looking forward to watch him at the Laver Cup๐Ÿค—

    A well deserved break for Rafa and all his fansโค๏ธ

  4. Diego Schwartzman got it sooooo right! Rafa is like a lion in the jungle. He will hunt you down til the very last scintillating point. My stomach couldn’t stop turning at every point and plot twist. Medvedev, you have a new fan. I congratulate you as well for challenging Rafa with such zest and belief. You will definitely be back in another final. But Rafa, the night and prize belongs to you. You were so fierce and relentless as usual. That fifth set left me so breathless. My bottle of wine was my oxygen. Hitting #4 at the US Open is so special and so are you. You break every ceiling with each victory. You are “Legend” and my hero! Many heartfelt wishes and congratulations. You have such an awesome team and family. Also loved watching your fiance rooting for you.
    You are simply the best!

    • Oh Diane, your wine and my whiskey! I had to turn the match off for large stretches; I have never been a fan of horror films and that’s what it felt like XD Other fans have steelier nerves than me, blimey.

      I watched the match again once I peeped at the score and saw Rafa had broken halfway through the 5th. I couldn’t understand how he’d done it, and from then on it was still sickeningly difficult, but I felt Rafa had shown himself that he had what it took to close it out. Just. JUST. When he won I literally dropped to the ground and screamed and woke up everyone in my house XD

      I am also pleased to find someone I can root for in Medvedev. He’s a lot of fun on court, and by all accounts a very down-to-earth and helpful guy off court. There is no such thing as a successor to Rafa in my heart, but there are a few new players who I’m excited to follow and cheer for now.

      • Hi Alex,

        Yes, We survived! Thanks to Rafa;’s prowess, relentless spirit and of course, our alcohol! I have been captivated by Rafa since he was a teen-ager making his presence known in his knee-length pants and tank tops. He was great then, and he keeps getting better with age, like fine wine! Watching Medvedev go toe to toe with Rafa, in his 1st final and winning was also breath-taking. He is definitely a contender and a very sweet and funny guy. But whoa, was I relieved when Medvedev’s shot went long and Rafa hit the ground in celebration. That was a fight until the bitter end. What a cliffhanger match. Sooooo happy Rafa prevailed. He Is King! Take care.

  5. Congratulations Rafa. Youโ€™ve made my day! Like so many others, I lived through the drama, the agony and the ecstasy of the final. The fight will make you even stronger and Iโ€™m so happy for you. What a lovely wedding gift. Now you can kick back, relax and focus on the very special day that you and Maria will share with family and friends next month.

  6. This match reminded me of the tie break Wimbledon 2008, jumping from my seat so many times, but the worrier style of both players was so similar to the AO 2012, and as Joko said, it’s a shame only one can win. So happy it was our champion Rafa this time. but great respect for Daniil too, I’m sure he has a great career ahead of him

  7. After his match, I headed to Twitter because I was excited to read all the congratulatory tweets. I especially enjoyed the one from his academy, included here by RNF, which says it all in a really cute way:

    4 RESPECTING
    4 OVERCOMING
    4 FIGHTING
    4 BELIEVING
    4 US
    4 US OPEN

    Sounds like someone we all know as a Gr8 CHAMPION

  12. I’m so pleased that Rafa won this US Open grand slam and recaptured #1 going into the remainder of the year . . This has been a very productive and successful year for Rafa as he has managed to win 2slams , Canadian Masters and Italian Open . Also , made the semi’s in the other 2slams . it’s just amazing to see Rafa inch that much closer to Federer and move Djokovitch back to#2 and 3 slams behind . Kudo’s to Medvedev for his incredible come back and pushing Rafa to the very limit and almost taking the match.

  13. Rafa, I don’t know how I survived this match I had so many palpitations. All I could do was keep praying that you would be the winner at the end. Daniil is 20 years younger so has plenty of years ahead. I am so grateful my prayers were answered. Congratulations and looking forward to seeing you in Australia and to number 20. Love you so much. Thankyou for giving us your fans such pleasure watching you play. God be with you in the next few weeks as you prepare for your wedding. We are all praying for a perfect day. All our love to you and Xisca.โคโคโคโค๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ†๐ŸŽ–๐ŸŽ–๐ŸŽ–๐ŸŽ–โคโคโคโค
