US Open has played special role in Rafa's run to 200

Rafael Nadal, 2013 US Open

Rafael Nadal won his 200th Grand Slam singles match Thursday at the French Open, a major milestone in his surefire Hall of Fame career. And while the nine-time French Open champion has done the majority of his damage at Roland Garros, the two-time US Open champion has enjoyed his share of success in Flushing Meadows as well.

In fact, Nadal has posted 43 victories at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, against just nine defeats – an 83 percent winning percentage that is second-best only to his record in Paris – and he has reached the semifinals or better in five of his last six visits to New York.

Here is a look at Rafa’s road to 200, broken down by major:

Australian Open
Career record: 45-10
Win percentage: 82%
Titles: 1 (2009)

French Open
Career record: 72-2
Win percentage: 97%
Titles: 9 (2005-08, 2010-14)

Career record: 40-9
Win percentage: 82%
Titles: 2 (2008, 2010)

US Open
Career record: 43-9
Win percentage: 83%
Titles: 2 (2010, 2013)

Nadal is now eighth on the Grand Slam match wins list, trailing just Roger Federer (302), Jimmy Connors (233), Andre Agassi (224), Ivan Lendl (222), Novak Djokovic (216), Roy Emerson (209) and Pete Sampras (203). All are former US Open champions.
