Today, Nadal won his fourth consecutive French Open title, equalling Bjorn Borg’s open era record with a masterclass in clay court tennis.
Dominating the world’s No. 1 player with astounding ease, Nadal swept six consecutive games early in the match and swept the final nine games to win 6-1, 6-3, 6-0.
It was Federer’s worst loss in his 173 Grand Slam matches, and the shortest Roland Garros men’s final in terms of games since 1977.
Federer admitted he lost out to the better man. ”Rafa deserves it so much. To lose a final is never much fun but I will try again next year,” he said.
