    Abid: Not sure how I am going to wake up at 6am for work but that was worth it! Incredible final. Feel bad for Medvedev who was brilliant. In the end Rafa was just bit too intense, bit too consistent and a bit too good.

    Who needs sleep?

    Nadal is just one of the three legends who are very, very tough to knock off.

    They aren't going anywhere.

    What a great state that tennis is in at the moment, how exciting.

    Medvedev 5-7 3-6 7-5 6-4 4-6 Nadal

    More from Rafa: This victory means a lot, especially the way the match became so difficult, so tough.

    "The nerves were so high after having the match under control. It was a crazy match.

    "I don’t know. I’m just emotional."

  9. 'One of the most emotional nights of my career'

    Medvedev 5-7 3-6 7-5 6-4 4-6 Nadal

    Rafa Nadal speaking after his win: “This has been an amazing final.

    "First word that I have is to Daniil. His summer is one of the best summers I've ever seen since I’ve been playing.

    "Tonight, everybody saw why he is the number four player in the world at just 23 years old. Many congratulations for everything. The way that he was able to fight, to change the rhythm of the match was just incredible. All the very best for the future, I am sure you will have many more chances to win here.

    “It has been one of the most emotional nights of my tennis career. Thank you very, very much, everybody in this stadium. It’s been amazing energy during both weeks. I think there isn’t another stadium in the world that is more energetic than this one so many thanks for everything.”

  11. 'You were booing me for a reason but I can change because I'm human'

    Medvedev 5-7 3-6 7-5 6-4 4-6 Nadal

    Daniil Medvedev speaking post-final: “To be honest in my mind, I was already thinking what do I say in the speech, it's going to be in 20 minutes.

    "I was like I have to fight for every ball, and it went further but it didn't go my way. I know earlier in the tournament I said a bad thing, and now it's a good thing.

    "It's because of your energy that I'm here in the final. I mean, tonight is going to always be in my mind because I played in the biggest court in the tennis world.

    "You guys were pushing me to prolong this match because you want to see more tennis. Because of you guys, I was fighting like hell.

    "It’s electric. You were booing me for a reason. I can also change because I am a human being and I can make mistakes. Thank you very much from the bottom of my heart."

  12. 'I was thinking if I won, what would they show?!'

    Medvedev 5-7 3-6 7-5 6-4 4-6 Nadal

    Daniil Medvedev speaking post-final: "First of all I just want to congratulate Rafa, 19th Grand Slam title is something unbelievable, outrageous.

    "I want to congratulate him and his team, you guys are doing an amazing job. It's very tough to play against you.

    "When I was looking on the screen and they were showing number one, number two, number 19, I was thinking if I won, what would they show?!

    "What you've done for tennis in general, it's amazing for our sport. Thank you and congrats again."

    Chandragupta: Crowd booing the umpire but even Nadal clapped him. Measure of his greatness!

    Let's hear what Medvedev has got to say. He's getting a huge applause and he cups his ear to the crowd. Last time he did that, he was the pantomime villain.

    Tonight, he's far from it.

    The way Medvedev has played over the last few weeks, he's definitely got the potential to be a Grand Slam champion one day.

    Boos for the chair umpire Ali Nili. Because there always has to be a pantomime villain here.

    Lots of boos as chair umpire Ali Nili receives his little trophy.
