World number one Rafael Nadal encouraged the victims of recent natural disasters not to give up and to fight back after devastation to their lives and homes after his US Open final triumph. The 31-year-old Spaniard won his 16th Grand Slam title and third US Open crown by defeating South African 28th seed Kevin Anderson 6-3, 6-3, 6-4. His victory came as Hurricane Irma was causing extensive damage across Florida, the home base for Anderson and many other top tennis stars. "I just want to say sorry for all the victims and keep going for everybody," Nadal said. "It's very sad moments for our world but keep fighting to come back." Nadal won his 10th French Open crown in June.

Wawrinka also injured so not included, but won Davis Cup with Fed. Could be added to Novak and Andy as missing from Europe.
