This year’s US Open concluded Monday night with the men’s finals, taken this year by Rafael Nadal of Spain, above.
Nadal, who beat Novak Djokovic of Serbia, seems to be taking a bite out of his loving cup. This is his second US Open win in four years. Djokovic won in 2011.
The women’s finals were held Sunday night and were a repeat of last year with Serena Williams, top, once again beating Victoria Azarenka of Belarus for the title.
The win is Williams’ fifth championship at the annual event held at the Billie Jean National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows Park. The two-week event draws 70,000 annually.
