Earlier this morning, Rafael Nadal defeated Daniil Medvedev in the final of the US Open final in a 5-set classic. The match swung from one court to another, until the 33-year-old Spaniard closed it in the 5th set, winning his 19th Grandslam in the process.
Since then, Twitter has been blowing up and bowing down to the genius of Rafa!
RAFAEL NADAL— Shivam (@iamSgarg) September 9, 2019
19th GS 👑
5th GS 👑 on Hard Courts
Only man to win 5 GS after turning 30
Young. Old. Injured. Healthy.
This man was born to own every court and inspire an entire generation. There will never ever be a man like him in any other sport.#USOpen #Nadal
This is one of the best #USOpenFinals I have ever watched.— US Rep Brendan Boyle (@RepBrendanBoyle) September 9, 2019

This final took it out of me just to watch. A bitter fight until the end. Two gladiators of tennis. Congrats to both players and the man #RafaelNadal...wow that’s fitness & execution on the court. 🎾 https://t.co/Uy3v2RjpIQ— Mojo Schlander (@sweetpup18) September 9, 2019
Good Lord! That was an intense game. If you couldn't watch it live, go watch the damn highlights. That was one of the all-time great classics.
