Rafael Nadal wins US Open title
Rafael Nadal of Spain reacts during his game against Novak Djokovic of Serbia at the 2013 US Open men's singles final match at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York on September 9, 2013. Nadal claimed his second US Open title and 13th Grand Slam crown with a 6-2, 3-6, 6-4, 6-1 in a lung-busting, big-hitting final.
Nadal, 27, added the 2013 trophy to his 2010 triumph, when he completed a career Grand Slam, and capped a year which has now seen him capture 10 titles and stretch his season winning record to 60 victories and just three losses.
Monday's win also earned him a total of $3.6 million, which takes his career earnings through the $60 million mark and also edged him closer to Roger Federer's record of 17 majors.
