Nadal beats Djokovic to win record seventh French Open
PARIS, June 11 – Spain’s Rafa Nadal beat Serbia’s Novak Djokovic 6-4 6-3 2-6 7-5 to win a record seventh French Open title today.
The number two seed overtook Sweden’s Bjorn Borg, who won six Roland Garros titles, and ended Djokovic’s hopes of becoming the third man to win four consecutive grand slams.
Play had been suspended yesterday because of rain with the Spaniard a break down in the fourth set, but he broke back in the first game today.
The match was heading towards a fourth-set tiebreak but the number two seed set up a break point in the 12th game and Djokovic’s dream ended with a double fault. – Reuters
