UPDATED - Video: Nadal, Monfils epic rally in US Open last 16

Rafael Nadal and Gael Monfils gave us almost 2 sets of some superhuman tennis before the Frenchman ran out of gas. I sure don't blame LeMonf considering the fact that the rally above was one of many epic ones during the first 2 sets.

The court coverage displayed by those two was just incredible, am just sad it didn't stay as competitive until the very end.

Rafa ended up winning 6-7, 6-3, 6-1, 6-3. I guess we needn't be concerned about the knees, the abs, or anything of that sort... At least for now!

Vamos Rafa!

Check out this video from ESPN including some highlights and Rafa's on-court interview after the win:

If Nadal can keep up this level he will win the US Open. The way Monfils fell apart after that second set shows how unbeatable Rafa can be. Vamos Rafa
