New York (United States), Sep 11 (ANI): An appropriate finishing kick for his 16th grand slam, world No. 1 Rafael Nadal literally overwhelmed Kevin Anderson, and the world alike, when he did not face a single break point and lost only 15 points on his serve in the final match, to win his third US Open title here. Nadal claimed his second grand slam title of the year - having won the French Open in June - beating No. 28 seed Kevin Anderson of South Africa in straight sets 6-3, 6-3, 6-4 at Arthur Ashe Stadium in Flushing, here. Nadal now has won at least two grand slam tournament titles in a season for the fourth time in his career. Nadal further solidified his standing as the world's No. 1 male player and trails only Roger Federer.
