Rafael Nadal vs Novak Djokovic

The Men's Final of the US Open is set to happen today at 4pm when these two great champions take to the court.

Once again it's Rafa vs. Novak and it's GOING TO BE A CLASSIC.

Every time these two meet there's a classic match. And today will be no exception for 2 good reasons.

1) Each man wants to and needs to win.

Novak wants to cement his domination at being the Number one ranked player in the world with another win over Rafa. He's currently at 65-2 this year, one of the greatest winning streaks in history.

Rafa needs to end the 0-5 losing streak (in matches against Novak) he's been on since Novak turned into a freight train.

2) It's New York, It's Sunny and It's the Final

After what seems like months of rain, the East Coast is finally drying out. The men fought for and gained an extra day of rest and were not forced to play 4 days in a row. They are rested and ready for battle. Barring any injury it should be a barn burner.

Note: The Semi-final Saturday between Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic was beyond outstanding. Roger won the first two sets had 2 match points and LOST after Novak came back to win 3 sets in a row. AMAZING!!! How could anyone not like this sport?
