Tennis champions, both seasoned and rookies, rose to the top of their game at the 2017 US Open in New York.

Rafael Nadal won his third US Open, and 16th Grand Slam title and Sloane Stephens won her first major US Open.

Nadal had a 6-3, 6-3, 6-4 win over South African player Kevin Anderson. This marks Nadal's second Grand Slam title of the season. 

Sloane Stephens saw quite the miracle as she was in a wheelchair earlier this year after recovering from foot surgery. The operation cost her 11 months off tour. Despite the surgery, the 24 year-old player defeated Madison Keys, 6-3, 6-0, in just one hour on Saturday.

"It's incredible," Stephens said. "I had surgery Jan. 23. If someone had told me then that I would win the US Open, 'It's impossible,' I would say. This journey has been incredible, and honestly I wouldn't change it for the world."
