Rafael Nadal is going to face Novak Djokovic in the US Open final after taking down Richard Gasquet in three sets.
No. 2 Rafael Nadal defeated Richard Gasquet 6-4, 7-6 (1), 6-2 on Saturday in the semifinals of the U.S. Open, advancing to his 12th final in 13 tournaments this year. Nadal will play No. 1 Novak Djokovic on Monday in their record 37th meeting.
From the article, there’s one cute little sentence that I laughed at:
But Gasquet couldn’t overcome Nadal’s pace and power. The Frenchman fell to 0-11 against his childhood rival.
Great rivalry there, huh? But, the post has great set by set analysis.
