The 19-time Grand Slam champion broke in the opening game, played attacking points with objective and never permitted the 10-time Roland Garros to get comfortable or extend rallies. It was an excellent tournament for both superstars, who are closing out 2017 and looking to carry momentum into 2018. Nadal had nearly blitzed through the field on his way to the final and was seeking his second title in China following his win in Beijing the previous week, but went down tamely 6-4, 6-3 to the ...

While Brady picked up his 24th career win over the Jets - his most over any team other than the Bills (26) - he didn't have his trademark accuracy and smart decision-making throughout.
