Rafael Nadal wins 11th French Open title!

Rafael Nadal won the French Open for the 11th time today and it clearly means as much to him as it ever did – probably more. The world number one was in tears during a prolonged ovation following his 6-4, 6-3, 6-2 victory over Dominic Thiem. At age 32, he was in vintage form against Thiem, a 24-year-old Austrian who had beaten Nadal three times on clay — but never in a best-of-five-set match. Nadal was focused and ferocious from the first point.Sunday’s result marks the sixth consecutive Grand Slam won by either Nadal or 20-times major champion Roger Federer. In 11 finals in Paris, the world No 1 has only lost six sets as he matched the all-time record of most singles titles won at the same grand slam event set by Margaret Court at the Australian Open during the 1960s and 70s.
