Rafael Nadal of Spain, winner of the 2010 U.S. Open tennis tournament, poses with the trophy at Times Square in New York, September 14.

The Spaniard won his first US Open singles title in 2010 and 13th overall Grand Slam title at the 2013 US Open. He is the youngest player to capture a career Grand Slam (at least one singles championship each at the Australian and French Opens, Wimbledon, and the US Open). Nadal is an eight-time champion of the French Open and Olympic gold medalist.
