The 2019 US Open Men’s Final will see two men with completely different outlooks facing off after Friday night confirmed it will be Rafa Nadal taking on Daniil Medvedev.
Nadal, who was down four points in the first-set tiebreaker with Matteo Berrettini, somehow pulled himself out of the fire and won in straight sets (7-6, 6-4, 6-1) to book a spot in the Final against the Russian. Meanwhile, the Russian fought off extremely unfancied Grigor Dimitrov 7-5, 6-4, 6-3 to keep up his villainous run. There will be a clear fan favorite in this one: Nadal. That much is for sure.
