Nadal Defeats Djokovic To Win Seventh French Open

By

Spain’s Rafa Nadal sank to his knees in celebration after beating Serbia’s Novak Djokovic 6-4 6-3 2-6 7-5 to win a record seventh French Open title on Monday, June 11.

The number two seed overtook Sweden’s Bjorn Borg, who won six Roland Garros titles, and ended Djokovic’s hopes of becoming the third man to win four consecutive grand slams.

“For me it is a great honour,” Nadal said, clutching the Musketeers Cup under his arm, after the presentation ceremony on court.

Play had been suspended on Sunday, because of rain, with the Spaniard a break down in the fourth set, but he broke back in the first game after the resumption, having rediscovered the penetrating fizz that deserted him in the damp conditions of the previous evening, according to Reuters.
