For the third straight year, the men's final was pushed to Monday. All it meant was one more day for Rafael Nadal to wait to get his career Grand Slam. No. 1 Nadal beat No. 3 Novak Djokovic 6-4, 5-7, 6-4, 6-2 to win his first U.S. Open and ninth overall major title. He became the seventh man to win the career Grand Slam and has a chance at a Rafa Slam, winning four straight majors (though not in a calendar year), at the 2011 Australian Open.
