US Open Champion 2010
Having two weeks of sleep deprived nights has all been worth it now I can say Rafa Nadal USO champion 2010 how good does that sound.
Having the disapointment of Sundays final being called off because of the rain I ws already to sit up all night to see Rafa finally achieve his career grand slam, I feel so priveledged to have sat up to witness it.
Of course it wasn't an easy final for rafa to win he also had the rain delays to deal with after taking the first set 6-4 and the tie nicely poised at 4-4 of course the rain had to come again and cause another delay, this time for nearly 2 hours, still I sat and patiently waited.
After the rain delay rafa lost his second set 5-7, not to be put off his destination he went and took the 3rd set 6-4. By then Novak Djokovic had played some great Tennis but you could tell the inevitable was about to happen rafa broke novaks serve twice to take the 4th set 6-2 and that was it rafa was the champion.
I can't explain how emotional this made me feel especially after all the injury's he had to deal with last year, plenty of people had wrote him off and saying he'd never win a title again, feels so good to ram it all down peoples throats.
Rafa nadal is one of the most humblest sportsman I have ever seen and i truly believe we are witnessing History in the making everytime this man takes to the court.
Congrats rafa you did us all proud.
