Rafael Nadal managed to win his ninth Roland Garros title. There is no other tennis player that managed to achieve this in the past. Nadal is now the older of 14 majors, trailing only Roger Federer by 3 after the final win over Novak Djokovic 3-6 7-5 6-2 6-4.
Everyone expected to see a really good match between the two but the difference was higher than in the past two meetings between the two.
The expectations of Djokovic’s fans were high since in the past few games against Nadal we saw him get closer to victory, winning more games. We also had a victory in Rome in May. Djokovic talked to reporters and said:
“My best wasn’t (like it was) against him in Rome.”
Nadal played almost flawlessly on his way to the final. He declared:
“Mentally I was so strong. I really wanted to defeat him. When there were problems cropping up, I managed to find the solutions.”
Rafael Nadal seems to be unstoppable on clay at the moment.
