U.S. Open 2019: Daniil Medvedev hails ‘outrageous’ Rafael Nadal after New York battle

Daniil Medvedev described Rafael Nadal’s 19th grand slam title as “unbelievable” and “outrageous” as he lauded the U.S. Open champion.

Nadal moved within a slam trophy of Roger Federer’s record men’s haul after outlasting Medvedev 7-5, 6-3, 5-7, 4-6, 6-4 in New York on Sunday.

Contesting his maiden major final, Medvedev was staring at a straight-sets defeat before the fifth seed produced a stunning rally at Flushing Meadows.

But Nadal withstood Medvedev’s comeback to prevail after almost five hours on court inside Arthur Ashe Stadium, where fans were brought to their feet in appreciation.
