Nadal Wins French Open




Whether it was the media swooping in and panning every moment of his finals day, the weather having a rally of its own or the critics who, well, will always be the devil’s advocate, neither of them could shake the mighty Spaniard.

Both the players were looking to make history with this game and the longer it took for the game to resume, the more desperate each of them became and at the end of the game, one cried out all his happiness, the other sighed and sat in a corner.

Back in 1969 Bjorn Borg had made his mark of excellence and it hadn’t been broken since. Year after year players played, tournaments were won but that record stayed. After a long, long time Rafael Nadal managed to give out a roar of victory as he clinched all four of the major titles to his name.

And it had to be a finals to remember; not just for the fight of the fittest but also because they were the two best players that tennis at the moment has. Usual Rafa starts out slow in his matches but then catches up like fire towards the latter part. Sunday and Monday were exceptions. He was on the top of his game the entire time and all the crowd was saying was “Vamos Rafa!”

With a game that ended 6-4 6-3 2-6 7-5, Rafael won 6 games out of the total nine he played and it came with seen effort. A tournament or two seem like along enough time to wait for such an honor, but Nadal waited 6 tough years to reach this point. He now has 11 grand slam titles to his name.

Yes the rain made things insufferable for both the players but this was the Roland Garros finals. It couldn’t have been easy. A saddened Djoko put on a media-friendly face to say that he was luck to have reached till the finals and play against one of the best players in the world. And that was true.

“He is definitely the best player in history on this surface, and results are showing that he is one of the best players that ever played this game, and he is only 26 years old. Hopefully we can have many more battles.”
