The title marks his 16th major championship.

This year soon after the 31-year-old Nadal won the US Open, one would reckon that age-old rivalry between Federer and Nadal is back on track. The reality of this season, however, is that Federer and Nadal have earned their status as the two greatest players in the history of the sport.

Rafael Nadal won th U.S. Open on Sunday, the 16th Grand Slam title in his career.

'As I said quite a few times, it's his competitiveness and the consistency at that level, ' beaten finalist Anderson said when asked what makes Nadal so special.

There had been a lot of alterations and improvistaions in both Federer's and Nadal's game.This had helped them a lot to dominate most of the events and tours they had taken part in.It is nice to know there is a lot going with their strategies.The modifications made in Rafa's backhand against del Potro is an example.

It was also a 2016 season that saw the injury-hobbled Nadal lose in the first round at the Australian Open, withdraw after two rounds of the French with a wrist problem, skip Wimbledon and exit the US Open in the last 16.

Nadal dropped three sets over the two weeks and never needed more than four to advance. "For me, this is just another step", he said after his loss to Coric in a half of the draw thrown wide open after the injury-hit withdrawal of Murray. He does his way. "Let's see when we finish", he said. A young 22-year-old Federer won the Wimbledon in 2003.Similarly a 19-year-old Nadal won his first French open during 2005.There isn't a single player who is here to chellenge the elite five of Federer, Nadal, Novak, Murray and Wawrinka.

'I have 16. So three is big difference. I have this trophy with me. I'm very happy with all the things that are happening to me, winning this title again.

"It's so important, winning on hard court again". It means a lot to me.

"There are things that probably Roger and me share - that is passion for what we are doing, passion for tennis, passion for the competition and the spirit of improvement all the time". "I still want to compete and still feel the nerves every time that I go on court".
