Rafael Nadal won his first U.S. Open title to complete a career Grand Slam, beating Novak Djokovic 6-4, 5-7, 6-4,
6-2 Monday in a thrilling final filled with fantastic shotmaking by both men and interrupted by a thunderstorm a day after it was
postponed by rain.
It's Nadal's third consecutive major championship and ninth
overall.
He is the seventh man in tennis history with at least one title
from each Grand Slam tournament.
Rain pushed the men's final from Sunday to Monday for the third
consecutive year, and play was interrupted for nearly two hours
during the second set. When they resumed, Djokovic took that set,
the only one Nadal lost in the tournament.
But the No. 1-ranked Spaniard quickly took a lead in the third
set and never let it go.
