Nadal hits nose with racket, tops Fognini | US Open updates

Rafael Nadal has come back to win at the U.S. Open after cutting himself on the bridge of his nose when his racket bounced off the court and smacked him in the face during the fourth set against Fabio Fognini

Nadal was bleeding and took a medical timeout. A trainer put a bandage on his nose.

The 22-time Grand Slam champion layed down on his back on the sideline while being treated by a trainer.

Fognini went over to check on Nadal.

Play resumed after about a five-minute delay when Nadal hurt himself on the first point of a game with Nadal leading 3-0 in the fourth set.

He was moving to his right when he hit a backhand and his racket deflected off ground and caught him on the nose.

Nadal immediately grimaced, dropped his racket, and put his right hand to his face.

Then he placed both hands on his head, before going over to the sideline.

The 22-time Grand Slam champion won the second-round match 2-6, 6-4, 6-2, 6-1 at Arthur Ashe Stadium.

They started Thursday night and finished after midnight.
