Cape Town - If tennis' official ATP website is to be believed, Spain's Rafael Nadal has ALREADY won this year's US Open title at Flushing Meadows in New York.

In actuality, Nadal will take on world No 1 Novak Djokovic in the final - scheduled for Monday night (22:30 SA time).

However, a look at the ATP website on Monday morning shows Nadal to have already been crowned champion - his 13th Grand Slam victory - although the score is yet to be determined.

Djokovic and Nadal will play for the 37th time on Monday, with Nadal currently holding a 21-15 head-to-head advantage.

It will be the fourth clash in 2013 between the pair, with Nadal ahead 2-1 to date, and, tellingly, having won their only hardcourt match-up in Montreal earlier this season.
