Rafael Nadal Ousted

So much for hopes of a much-hyped U.S. Open finals faceoff between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. Juan Martin Del Potro of Argentina beat Nadal in three straight sets 6-2, 6-2, 6-2 in a match lasting over two hours on Sunday. Del Potro, the No. 6 seed, now heads to his first grand-slam final against none other than five-time champ Federer or fourth-seed Novak Djokovic of Serbia.
