“Probably nobody brings my game to the limit like Novak,” said Nadal, 27, after the game had finished.
A slew of celebrities were in attendance for the final match, including a very giddy and flirty Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, soccer stud David Beckham, actors Alexander Skarsgard, Orlando Bloom, Kevin Spacey and Big Bang Theory co-stars Kaley Cuoco and Jim Parsons, just to name a few.
With the win, Nadal moved into third on the list of all-time major titlists with 13 Grand Slam titles, behind Roger Federer (17) and Pete Sampras (14), and cemented his status as the most relentless competitor in tennis.
He also collected $3.6 million for his effort, which includes a $1 million bonus for dominating the North American hard-court season that feeds into the season’s final major.
