19 Slams for Nadal

Rafael Nadal admitted he feared he had blown his chance of a 19th grand slam title when Daniil Medvedev mounted his astonishing comeback in their epic US Open final.

The Spanish second seed led by two sets and a break, but Russian fifth seed Medvedev somehow hit back to level the match and had break points at the start of the decider.

But Nadal dug as deep as he has probably ever had to to secure a dramatic 7-5 6-3 5-7 4-6 6-4 victory in four hours and 50 minutes to move to within one major title of Roger Federer’s record tally of 20.
