SPANISH tennis ace Rafa Nadal has secured his place in history winning his first US Open title and becoming one of only seven men to have won all four grand slam titles in their career.

The World number one has now won the Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon and US Open, after beating the Serbian player Novak Djokovic in the final on Monday.

Although Djokovic became the first in the tournament to take a set off his opponent, it was Nadal who dominated the match.

And after an interruption of an hour and 50 minutes due to rain, the match at Flushing Meadows finally ended in a 6-4 5-7 6-4 6-2 victory for the 24-year-old Spaniard.

He said: “It is more than I dreamt, just to arrive to the final was amazing and to have the trophy in my hands in a few seconds with my heart beating is going to be unbelievable.”
