The mix between Rafa and this crowd, is the peak of the energy applied to a tennis game. Nadal loves the US Open, with all his heart.

RossBayCult:
The New York crowd loves his shotmaking and enthusiasm for the sport. He feeds off their energy as well. Really, this crowd is the most representative of Nadal’s attitude on court.

After Paris, this is the other grand slam that he’s had the most success. 2010, 2013, 2017, 2019 champion.

5:21 I was in Arthur Ash that championship match. The crowd went berserk with this shot and for many others too. Nadal must win the 3rd set to be in the match. He did win it in the tie-breaker. The 3rd set was so out of this world, it could be “The Set” of the decade in a USO championship match. Alas, he lost the match in the 4th set, all credits to Nole, he was a different animal in 2011. But the match was electric than what the scoreline suggests. Nadal is a fierce competitor. I don’t think anyone else has been a part of so many “down to the wire nail-biters”.

That's why I love the US Open because of the crowd's love. US Open 2017 my best grandslam for Rafa

Gabriel Margolies:
What's insane is that a lot of these amazing shots most likely didn't affect the outcome of the match. At 3:33, 6:49, and 14:44, it was too early in the match to matter if he won the point or not. At 8:37, 13:19, and 14:24, he would almost certainly have won the match even if he didn't win these points. The fact that he still tried his hardest to chase down every ball shows why Rafa has the best fighting spirit in history!

Younger Nadal standing close to baseline...going for down the line forehand more often... Unlike Federer and Novak older Nadal looks more cautious...

Lol at 4:04 when Youzhny's shot hits the net I thought for a second that it went over the net and that Nadal hit an insane volley and I was like, "Why haven't I seen this before?"

I love you, Rafa. Apart from being a great, great champion, he is such a nice, kind, genuine guy. I've been watching him since before 2005, when he hit the big time, and he's always been the same, a credit to the way his family brought him up. No arrogance, no tantrums, no racquet throwing, no swearing or showing off, a real role model.

“Phenomenadal,” I think that’s how Nadal would actually pronounce phenomenal if he tried. Like his “unbeliebabal.”
