Rafael Nadal's third U.S. Open and 16th Grand Slam title meant a familiar look for the landscape of men's tennis – and a worrying wake-up call in the city that never sleeps for the next generation.From Wimbledon in 2003, an incredible 53 of 58 slams have now been claimed by just five men – Roger Federer (19), Nadal (16), Novak Djokovic (12) and Andy Murray and Stan Wawrinka with three apiece.To hammer home their enduring appeal and dominance, Federer and Nadal shared the four slams in 2017 – Federer beating Nadal in the Australian Open final before capturing a record eighth Wimbledon.Both Federer and Nadal have five titles apiece for 2017, impressive for two men who were ranked 16 and nine respectively at the end of 2016 .
