Rafa Nadal: cloud nine and seventh heaven as Spaniard completes career Slam

Rafa Nadal’s success in the US Open final this week means his Grand Slam singles titles tally moves to nine, and he moves up to seventh place on the all-time list, behind only Federer, Sampras, Emerson, Laver, Borg and Tilden (see details below).

Famously Rafa also becomes the seventh man to career a career Grand Slam after Perry, Budge, Laver, Emerson, Agassi and Federer.

On winning in New York, inevitable questions have been asked of Nadal whether he could compete for the title of all-time best, a title many believe is Federer’s for now.

To which the Mallorcan replied: “I think talk if I am better or worse than Roger is stupid. The titles say he’s much better than me, so that’s true at moment. I think it will be true all my life.”
