Rafael Nadal wins U.S. Open, completes career Grand Slam
You might have missed it when CBS bailed on finishing its telecast of the men's final at the U.S. Open (most people did when ESPN dangled the shiny object that is professional football), but Rafael Nadal became the youngest player to win a career Grand Slam on Monday night. CBS was showing "Two and a Half Men" or something and ESPN scrambled to find a spot, knocking the water-skiing squirrel from The Ocho.
But that doesn't diminish the significance of Nadal's accomplishment. His career Grand Slam (we're talking modern era here) comes at the age of 24; Roger Federer was 27 when he did it and Andre Agassi at 29.
Good luck trying to find it on TV, though.
I'll never forget the look on the face of Arrowhead Stadium when Rafael Nadal hoisted the US Open trophy for the first time.
