Rafael Nadal Gets Emotional After His 12th French Open Title

Nadal hits a backhand

Second on the list is Roger Federer of Switzerland, who has won eight Wimbledon titles.

Soon enough, Nadal found himself in a familiar position in Paris: playing in the final, and winning it. With the win, Nadal has now won more French Open titles than Rod Laver of Australia and Bjorn Borg of Sweden have won total majors as each of them have won 11 majors all-time.

Ash Barty has won the first set of the women's final at the French Open against Marketa Vondrousova by a score of 6-1. But Rafa, maybe angered by losing the lead, upped his play taking the last four games of a 54 minute first set. "It's an incredible moment and very special for me".

"I love this tournament with all my heart, I love you people with all my heart", he told the crowd. So I have to do my schedule.

The 33-yr-frail is the first participant to decide on 12 singles titles on the the same Noteworthy Slam and has now gained 18 majors overall. "After the first round in Barcelona, I was able to stay alone for a couple of hours in the room and think about it and think about what's going on, what I need to do", Nadal said on Sunday. "I was very close to being in the quarterfinals, and previous year I was one point away [from serving for a place in] that final".

The 33-year-old Spaniard becomes the first player, man or woman, to win the same Slam 12 times after seeing off a fearless challenge from a tired Thiem in a repeat of the 2018 final.

"Of course, why not?" he said.

He wasted break points in the first and third games of the fourth set and Nadal pounced to stretch to 3-0. "He's too good to not be a contender in every tournament he plays".

There has never been, and probably never will be a clay court maestro like Rafael Nadal in the world of tennis.

After his victory, Nadal humbly paid tribute to the vanquished Thiem, consoling the 25-year-old Austrian clay court specialist by saying he would one day be the player standing holding the famous La Coupe des Mousquetaires trophy. "The experience says that having the right preparation, practising well, and maybe a couple of matches before there (works)". I really hope he has chance to win in the future.

This was the second year in a row in which Nadal has beaten Thiem in the final. He has won his 12th Roland-Garros title, defeating Dominic Thiem in the finals on Sunday.

He said: "It's very tough". "The numbers are insane". Not even 24 hours later, I have to step on court against another unbelievable legend of our game, against the best clay-court player of all time. Nadal held at love no fewer than four times and Thiem almost matched him.

"And don't give me that the others are too good".

Dominic Thiem, 25, is the only male player now aged under 28 to have reached a Grand Slam final.

"I felt fine physically, the first set was unbelievably intense, and the second set. Not even 24 hours later, I have to step on court against another wonderful legend of our game, against the best clay court player of all time", Thiem said.
