Nadal wins 11th French Open title

10 June 2018

Rafael Nadal overcame the challenge from Dominic Thiem and cramps to win his 11th French Open title on Sunday.

French Open prize money 2018: How much will Rafael Nadal earn?

Over the best-of-five sets on clay, Nadal improved to 111-2 - it is a figure nearly as imposing as the nearby Eiffel Tower - his lone reverses coming against Robin Soderling in 2009 and Novak Djokovic in 2015 at the French Open.

Thiem, a 24-year-old Austrian who was playing in his first Grand Slam final, had 18 unforced errors in first set and 42 for the match.

No stranger to rewriting the record books along with his friendly rival, Roger Federer, here is another feat for the Spaniard: He joined Margaret Court in becoming the only tennis players in history to win the same grand slam 11 times. Nadal had another massage at 5-2 and he ended Thiem's ordeal on his fifth match point when the Austrian returned long.

But against Thiem, there was nothing wrong with Nadal's start. I can't see past another Nadal victory but believe Thiem will take a set off the great man. But against an opponent of Nadal's caliber, a lack of variance in his game plan proved crippling.

The former mayor of NY said: "Yes, I respect porn stars". "A guy walked up on me and said to me, 'Leave Trump alone". The first lady has not publicly commented about any of the sexual misconduct allegations against her husband.

The trophy was carried into the Court Philippe Chatrier in a brown box during a brief ceremony before play begins and unveiled by the two stars of music and screen.

That is the verdict of two-time French Open champion Jim Courier.

The No. 6-seeded pairing from the Czech Republic beat Eri Hozumi and Makoto Ninomiya of Japan 6-3, 6-3 on Sunday.

The unseeded Hozumi and Ninomiya were the first all-Japanese duo to reach a Grand Slam final in women's doubles.

It's also his 17th career major title.

With the two heavy favourites in the semi-finals winning, we have the final that most people during the latter stages would have wanted, Nadal v Thiem, and before I discuss the data in detail, I wanted to talk about their previous meetings a little more. There is a slight chance of rain, but not until later in the afternoon after 5pm.
