Rafael Nadal, Dominant Once Again

Rafael Nadal once again looked to dominate at the French Open.   Astonishingly, he improved to 52-1 overall, defeating the number one player in the world, Novak Djokovic to earn his 7th French Open Championship.  It was payback since Novak beat him in the last three grand slam title matches.  Nadal now ties Björn Borg and Rod Laver with 11 Grand Slam titles and is fourth among the all-time leaders, trailing Roger Federer with the most at 16.

Check out a glimpse of the action:


The championship match started Sunday night but was disrupted by rain that turned the court from clay into mud, as Nadal led two sets to one.  It was an exciting match to watch.  Rafael was pushed to a fourth set – losing a set for the first time during his championship run.  The match then finished as Nadal took control on Monday afternoon in Paris. He is known as the “Master of Clay,” with his exceptional speed and mesmerizing spin put on the ball.   At the age of 26 be sure to watch out for Nadal as he is catching up to Federer’s historic grand slam titles.
