Nadal Wins 11th French Open Title

Nadal is the only second player in history to win the same Grand Slam on 11 occasions after Margaret Court, who won 11 Australian Open titles between 1960 and 1973. In his 11 French Open finals, Nadal has lost only six sets.

"It's awesome now, I can't describe my feelings", a sweat-soaked Nadal told the crowd.

The couple recently Wednesday during a low-key ceremony in west London, and the two have wasted little time in enjoying married life.

Two of the Spaniard's 17 Grand Slam titles came on the All England Club's lawns, but the 32-year-old has struggled to make an impact there in recent years. It was a demanding two months for me.

Nadal condemned his great rival to his worst ever loss in a Grand Slam event.

"But the intensity he put on throughout this match was just extraordinary".

But he has purposefully spent the past few months preparing himself for the grass-court season ahead of Wimbledon, where he will hope to pick up a ninth SW19 title. But Nadal himself wasn't too bothered.

"I have never been insane about this kind of stuff".

"You can't live with this feeling. You have to do your way". It was very humid and he pushed me to the limit.

Tennis is lucky to have Nadal. Across the other slow-medium clay venues - Monte Carlo, Barcelona and here - Nadal has utterly schooled Thiem.

"It's awesome now, I can't describe my feelings", Nadal told the crowd on Philippe Chatrier Court moments after capturing his 17th Grand Slam trophy with a 6-4 6-3 6-2 victory. It added more voices by the time 2008 rolled around. At one point finally, Thiem tried going around the post in the penultimate game, just after a Nadal cross-court backhand return seared so close over the net cord that it made the Parisians murmur. Holding the trophy during the awards ceremony, he wept.

Australia's Rosewall was in the crowd on Sunday to see the final, 50 years after he won the title in Paris. "But I can't always be thinking of more", he said.

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. But that's the best-of-three sets and in different, faster conditions.

Daddy dearest: Dani lamented: "It just seems to be that I always step forward for the same boys". 'I've got to talk to Jack later. But the urgent question Love Island viewers were demanding answers to yesterday was: 'Is blow-drying your eyelashes a thing?'

But once a competive first set went the way of the world number one, the plan became damage limitation and Nadal's "undecima" never looked in any doubt.

According to ESPN, Nadal is now the first player in the Open era, male or female, to win the same Grand Slam tournament 11 times.

Since Nadal won his first major at Roland Garros in 2005, the "Big Four" have claimed 48 of the past 53 Grand Slam titles.

Tennis has been good for Nadal but he has been just as influential as a key driver of the sport's growth.

Thiem started the match quite poorly. He had the trainers visit his chair repeatedly, which may have supplied some viewers with mild intrigue.

By 15, he had turned professional and, two years later, won his first match against Federer. Thiem climbed to a 1-0 edge, but Nadal fought to hold a 3-1 advantage. I felt myself playing well on grass past year.

The problem for the 24-year-old was that his serve wasn't co-operating. Overall, the tally was a mere 58 percent. The French Open statisticians are nicer than they should be, as all but one of Thiem's 19 errors in that stretch were unforced (officially, 12 were unforced and seven were forced). While serving down 4-5, Thiem played an absolutely atrocious game.

In a 10-minute second game of the second set, Thiem suffered more trauma. He dropped serve on a fifth break chance.

Having been there, done that so often, Nadal, meanwhile, followed the usual script to perfection.

After an early swap of service breaks in Paris, it was 4-all in the opening set. He continued to pummel his ground strokes to further inflict woe on Thiem.

"It's a dream to win 11 times", Nadal said.

Certainly, Nadal played a role.
