Rafael Nadal Advances to US Open Final

Rafael Nadal

The 31-year-old Spaniard, who ousted Juan Martin del Potro on Friday to reach Sunday's US Open final, said the year he has enjoyed has brought a happiness no Slam crown can match after past seasons of misery unable to unleash his best efforts. After Nadal vs. Del Porto, you can watch South Africa's Kevin Anderson take on Pablo Carreno Busta.

Anderson, the 28th seed, defeated Spaniard Pablo Carreño Busta 4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4 here Friday to claim a spot in the US Open final.

"I have had an unbelievable season after some tough moments with injuries in recent years", said Nadal, who started 2017 by finishing runner-up to Federer in Australia.

"In some ways I'm actually happy I made the quarters, so I'm not disappointed, because it's been a good run this year already. I will now face a very tough opponent, probably the most important match for me that remains this year, so I gonna try my best to play my best". I had to change a couple of things after the first set because I was playing on his backhand too much and he was waiting for me there.

Rafael Nadal is one win from capping a career-turnaround season with a 16th Grand Slam title, following one of the most magnificent hours of hard-court tennis of his life. The games were short, and Anderson made several errors in the seventh game that allowed Carreno Busta to break his serve and take a 4-3 lead and eventually win the set. "Important victory against a great opponent", beamed Nadal. He's a huge player with an unbelievable serve and he plays so well on these kinds of surfaces. The final match of the US Open is scheduled for tomorrow.

Although Anderson has some big-time weapons, particularly on his serve, the world No. 1 is playing, as he likes to say, with calm, clear thought and with the peace of mind that he is not dealing with any injuries. Dealing with an illness, del Potro came back from a two-set deficit to win his fourth-round match in five sets, and then got past 19-time major champion Federer in the quarterfinals in four sets.

Earlier in the day, Coco Vandeweghe dispatched women's top seed Karolina Pliskova 7-6 (7-4), 6-3 to match her best ever Grand Slam performance.

"Juan Martin deserves it more". At 5:30 P.M. log into your chosen cable provider and jump into the game between Rafael Nadal and Juan Martin Del Potro.

It was all over in the eighth game when Nadal buried unleashed a backhand victor.

We have to add, though, that Anderson, had no major tests before these finals.

Nadal and Federer have incredibly never met at the US Open but, with Andy Murray and Novak Dojokovic both missing from this year's tournament, it was anticipated they would finally face one another in NY.
