Golfing legend and daughter Sam watch Spaniard set-up Sunday showdown with Kevin Anderson at Flushing Meadows
TIGER WOODS put last month’s nude leaks scandal behind him as he watched Rafa Nadal’s US Open semi-final clash with Juan Martin del Potro from the comfort of the Spaniard’s private box.
The golf legend was rocked in August as private photos of him and former partner Lindsey Vonn were published online.
A hacker reportedly broke into Vonn’s phone and gained access to explicit photos of the Olympic skier.
Woods and the 32-year-old successfully had the saucy snaps deleted from the website after launching a stinging attack on those responsible and claiming they were “outrageous and despicable” before threatening legal action.
But Woods appears to be moving on from that embarrassing episode as he, daughter Sam and son Charlie sat alongside Nadal’s coaches, friends and family at Flushing Meadows on Friday night.
And they were in for a fun night as they witnessed the No1 seed secure a 4-6, 6-0, 6-3, 6-2 victory to reach his first US Open final since 2013.
Nadal will now meet Kevin Anderson in the showpiece on Sunday as he attempts to add to his 15 Grand Slam single titles.
And major championships are nothing new to Woods, who has won 14 titles throughout his illustrious career on the course.

The 41-year-old has endured a difficult few months.
He was arrested in May on suspicion of driving under the influence.
A toxicology report released in August found that Woods had five drugs in his system, including traces of cannabis.
However, after recovering from back surgery in April, the American is expected to return to the golf course later this month for the Presidents Cup.
He has been named assistant to captain Steve Stricker for the US team.
