Incredible Dozen for Nadal in Paris!

It was an historic occasion tonight for Rafael Nadal by winning the French Open title for the 12th time and receiving the trophy from the legendary Australian, Rod Laver!

Incidentally, Laver is a 12-time Grand Slam winner but that was across all the four Grand Slam events.

Austrian Dominic Thiem started off brilliantly, taking a set off Nadal, but I think his temperament failed him in the end.

With today’s win at Roland Garros, Nadal takes his Grand Slam tally to 18, just two short of Roger Federer’s 20.

The FedEx record may be broken, but Nadal’s incredible dozen in Paris looks unbeatable!
