Nadal Wins US Open 2010

Nadal had already won the Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon singles titles and by adding the US Open he joined Fred Perry, Don Budge, Rod Laver, Roy Emerson, Andre Agassi and Roger Federer as the only men to win the four majors.

At 24, he is the third youngest to achieve the feat and his best may be still to come.

Nadal became the first man since Laver in 1969 to win the French Open, Wimbledon and US Open in the same year and he now has the chance to hold all four concurrently if he can add the Australian Open in January.


Here are the collection pics of those Grand Slam Titles ......



Vs Mariano Puerta 6–7(6), 6–3, 6–1, 7–5    @ 2005 French Open



Vs Roger Federer 1–6, 6–1, 6–4, 7–6(4)  @ 2006 French Open


Vs Roger Federer  0–6, 6–7(5), 7–6(2), 3–6    @ 2007 French Open


Vs Roger Federer  6–1, 6–3, 6–0  @ 2008 French Open


Vs Roger Federer  6–4, 6–4, 6–7(5), 6–7(8), 9–7  @ 2008 Wimbledon


Vs Roger Federer  7–5, 3–6, 7–6(3), 3–6, 6–2   @  2009 Australian Open


Vs Robin Soderling 6–4, 6–2, 6–4   @  2010 French Open

Vs  Tomáš Berdych  6–3, 7–5, 6–4   @  2010 Wimbledon

Vs   Novak Djokovic   6–4, 5–7, 6–4, 6–2  @  2010 US Open


With nine Grand Slam titles in total -- five French Opens, two Wimbledon, one Australian Open and now one US Open, he climbed to seventh place on the all-time list and Federer's record of 16 could be within his reach if he stays healthy.
