There are few people in the world that can match Spanish tennis star Rafael Nadal’s talent, and he proved that last night after an incredible, 5-hour long battle on the U.S. Open courts when he defeated Daniil Medvedev to win his 19th Grand Slam Title. It also marked Nadal’s 4th U.S. Open Win, proving that he may be king of the clay, but he can also make history on the hard courts.

Both players gave all they had in the grueling match as Medvedev proved himself to the New York crowd, by the end of the match, bringing them all to their feet in total admiration and applause. But in the end, Nadal prevailed, accepting his trophy with tears in his eyes after the extraordinarily emotional Final totaling five sets: 7-5, 6-3, 5-7, 4-6, 6-4.
