Sweet 16 for Nadal
NEW YORK (AP) — Rafael Nadal is a Grand Slam champion for the 16th time following an easy win over No. 32 seed Kevin Anderson at the U.S. Open.
Nadal completed his dominant two-week run at Flushing Meadows with a 6-3, 6-3, 6-4 victory over the 31-year-old South African. Nadal broke Anderson four times and never lost on serve in completing his third U.S. Open championship and first since 2013.
It's the second major title of the year for Nadal, who also captured the French Open.
Anderson was the lowest-ranked U.S. Open men's finalist since the ATP computer rankings began in 1973.
