Nadal wins record Seventh French Open

Rafael Nadal won a record seventh French Open title on Monday. He defeated world number one Novak Djokovic by 6-4, 6-3, 2-6, 7-5. He Shattered the Serb’s dream of Grand Slam history. In the final pushed into a third week for only the second time because of Sunday’s rain, the Spanish World two, playing in his 16th Grand Slam Final took his Paris record to a staggering 52 wins against just one loss.

Victory allowed him to break the tie for six French Opens he shared with Bjorn Borg. It was the 26 year old’s 11th Grand Slam title, taking him one behind Roy Emerson three off Pete Sampras and five away from the record of 16 held by Roger Federer.

For five time major winner Djokovic the Wimbledon, US open and Australian Open Champion, it was the end of his dream of emulating Don Budge and Rod Laver by holding all the Grand Slams at once.
