For the seventh time, Rafel Nadal was crowned king of the French Open. The crowd once again witnessed an ecstatic Nadal on his back on the ground with his hand towards the sky after a 6-4, 6-3, 2-6, 7-5 win over Novak Djokovic. That Djokovic finally lost the match by committing a double-fault could not take away from Nadal’s fantastic performance in the tournament.
After the match, Nadal declared “This tournament is, for me, the most special tournament of the world” and the fans were more than glad to agree.
Nadal broke the record he shared with Bjorn Borg and in beating Djokovic, he also defeated the player who managed to deny him victory in the last three Grand Slam finals.
