The US Open is almost over. Just like the women's final, where Bianca Andreescu upset Serena Williams to earn her first Grand Slam title, the men's finale has a legend competing against a potential first-time Grand Slam winner.

Rafael Nadal will be taking on Daniil Medvedev, a Russian who captured the Cincinnati title, raising his ranking to a high of No. 5. This fortnight has been his best run at a major since reaching the fourth round at the Australian Open this year. They recently faced off in the Montreal final, with Nadal winning handily 6-3, 6-0.
