U.S. Open: Andy Murray Upsets Rafael Nadal
Rafael Nadal has won the French Open, Wimbledon and the Olympic gold medal this year, and in the process he looked absolutely unbeatable.
At least, he looked unbeatable until today at the U.S. Open, when someone beat him.
That someone was Britain's Andy Murray, who made his first Grand Slam final by beating Nadal 6-2, 7-6, 4-6, 6-4, starting the upset yesterday and then finishing Nadal off today after the rain finally stopped. By beating Nadal, Murray pulled off the year's biggest upset in men's tennis.
Tomorrow Murray will face Roger Federer, who suddenly isn't looking quite as washed up as everyone was saying he was, in the final. That they're still playing tennis and Nadal isn't part of it is a shock.
