Rafa Nadal´s incredible numbers after superb feat at the US Open 2019

The great victory of Rafael Nadal against Daniil Medvedev in last night´s spectacular final of the US Open, has become one of the greatest news in the world of sports because of its immense proportions and the meaning of it all. For Nadal it is an extraordinary milestone that puts him even closer to absolute glory in contemporary tennis. The statistics he has broken and the records he has overcome are a true testimony:

- Fourth US Open title, equalling John McEnroe, Jimmy Connors, Pete Sampras and Roger Federer for the same number on titles in NY.

--19 Grand Slam titles (of 27 disputed finals), one shy to Federer´s Grand Slam record

--Second in the world ranking with 9,225 points, just 640 from Novak Djokovic

- Leader in the Race to London, now with 1,960 points over Djokovic (he was the first to ensure his mathematical classification)

- Fifth Grand Slam title at more than 30 years of age, the only player in history to do so (Rod Laver, Ken Rosewall, Federer and Djokovic have won four)

- Fourth ATP title of the season, one more than his main rivals

- Title number 84 of his career, fourth of all time after Connors, Federer and Ivan Lendl

--Unique player together with Federer who has played at least five finals in the four Grand Slam tournaments

- Fifth year in which he wins two Grand Slam titles (in 2010 he won three)

--Author of the biggest winning streak of the moment with 11, the five from Montreal and the six from New York (Thanasi Kokkinakis was beaten by w.o.)

--47 matches won in 2019, three less that the first in this category, precisely Daniil Medvedev (six losses in total)

--966 victories throughout his career (196 losses)

--271 victories in Grand Slam matches (38 losses)

--457 wins in hard court matches (131 losses)

--169 victories against Top-10 players (89 losses)
