US Open day 12 recap: Nadal a step closer to Federer

2019 US Open men's singles final will be a challenge between Rafael Nadal and Daniil Medvedev. The Spaniard is a step closer to Roger Federer; should he win the final against the young Russian he would get the 19th Major, with the Swiss Maestro at 20.

No chances for Matteo Berrettini and Grigor Dimitrov, eliminated with honor in the semifinals. Today the women's singles final: Serena Williams and Bianca Andreescu are ready to write history at Flushing Meadows, with Serena who, now more than ever, is close to the much-dreamed record that still belongs to Margaret Smith.

Naomi Osaka and Diego Schwartzman were honored with the US Open Sportsmanship Award, a prize that from 2011 USTA reserves for those who, in the women's and men's tournaments, have distinguished themselves for their sportiness during the US Open Series.

About tournaments in the USA. Oracle has announced the creation of the Oracle Pro Series, a Tour that will have more than twenty tournaments in the USA between 2019 and 2020. The project, started in collaboration with ATP, WTA and ITF, wants to give more opportunities to young American players to collect points and become professional players.

The charity match between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal scheduled for 2020 February 7th in Cape Town sold 48,000 tickets in ten minutes! This is the real power of Roger and Rafa, who are capable of being like a magnet, like two real rock-stars!
