US open tennis

Spain's Rafa Nadal accepts the acclaim of the Flushing Meadow crowd after he ended the dreams of surprise South African challenger Kevin Anderson as he claimed his third US Open title and 16th grand slam with a 6-3 6-3 6-4 final victory in New York last night.

Nadal has again closed to within three of Roger Federer's  all-time record of 19 slam singles titles. Nadal's victory also means he and Federer have claimed all four major titles between them for the first time since 2010.
