Notes and Editorial Reviews

Rafael Nadal arrived at the 2010 US Open pursuing a place in history. Nadal had won one Australian Open, five French Open and two Wimbledon titles, but the US Open had consistently eluded him. His health breaking down on the unforgiving hard courts at Flushing Meadows, denying him the title he needed to become the seventh man in tennis history to own the career Grand Slam. When the dust settled one man stood between him and history, Novak Djokovic. For Novak Djokovic, the US Open had become his best Grand Slam event. While his lone Slam title came at the 2008 Australian Open, his best record had been at the US Open and in 2010 he became just the fifth man in the Open Era to reach four consecutive US Open singles semifinals.
