French Open: Nadal Defeats Djokovic For A 20th Grand Slam Title


Rafael Nadal has won his 13th French Open singles title and 20th Grand Slam tournament by beating Novak Djokovic in straight sets and he is now on tie with Roger Federer’s record of 20 Grand Slam singles titles.

Nadal’s who made one of his finest career performance at Roland Garros, annihilated the current world’s No. 1 player, Novak Djokovic 6-0, 6-2, 7-5 in a three straight-set thriller. The joint titleholder made just two in the opening set, giving Djokovic little time or space to find his range.

Nadal has now boasted of an 18-3 record against the Serbs. Sunday’s game was their 16th meeting at a major – 9-6 in Nadal’s favour – and their ninth in a Grand Slam final, which now stands at 5-4 to Nadal. With 81 consecutive wins on clay, Nadal holds the record for the longest single-surface win streak in the Open Era.
