At 23 years-old, Medvedev will become the youngest male Grand Slam finalist for nine years. The fifth seed beat Bulgaria’s Grigor Dimitrov to win his semi final 7-6 (7-5) 6-4 6-3.
The Russian has been in superb form on the North American hard courts of late, having been a beaten finalist in Washington (Nick Kyrgios) and Montreal (Nadal), before winning the title in Cincinnati (David Goffin).
In reaching the 2019 US Open tennis final, Rafa Nadal became only the third man to reach all four finals in the same season during the Open era. That run has ensured that he’s now won 20 of his past 22 matches.
Nadal reached the US Open final with a straight-sets win over Italian Matteo Berrettini. The Spanish second seed survived two set points in the opening set before going through in a 7-6 (8-6) 6-4 6-1 win.
While Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer surprisingly fell by the wayside earlier in the tournament, Nadal has only dropped one set on his way to the final.
