Rafael Nadal won his 19th Grand Slam champion - one less than his arch rival Roger Federer's all-time best haul of 20 - at the US Open on Sunday.

The tennis world was quick to hand credit to the Spaniard, who saw off a fine comeback from Daniil Medvedev, to secure a 7-5, 6-3, 5-7, 4-6, 6-4 win.

Rod Laver, who won 11 Grand Slam titles of his own, led the praise for the 33-year-old.
