Best bet on the Tube


The stakes are always high, the encounters always memorable. Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic have built the best rivalry in tennis on a mountain of big-time matches, the likes of which they’ll play today (CBS, 2 p.m.) in the U.S. Open final. It will be the 37th meeting of their careers – the most times in the Open era that any two men have played. Nadal will be going for his 13th major title, Djokovic his seventh. Nadal is seeded second, Djokovic first. This will be their third meeting in the last four years in the final in Arthur Ashe Stadium, a stretch interrupted last year when Nadal sat out with a knee injury. – Associated Press
