A relentless Rafael Nadal thumped Kevin Anderson 6-3 6-3 6-4 to win the U.S. Open on Sunday (September 10), earning the Spaniard his second grand slam title of the season and 16th of his career.

While women’s tennis has produced three first-time grand slam winners this season the older players have come back to reign supreme in the men’s game with Nadal and longtime rival Roger Federer sweeping the majors with two apiece this season.

It marked the fourth U.S. Open final and third title for Nadal but the first time that he did not have Novak Djokovic standing on the other side of the net.

The world number one was as brilliant as he was business-like, keeping the towering South African under constant pressure while not facing a single break point.

For Anderson it was his first grand slam final, but he was unable to shake up Nadal’s forceful play. His booming serve had no impact while Nadal delivered a near-perfect performance for a soldout crowd at Arthur Ashe Stadium committing just 11 unforced errors.
