Spain’s Rafael Nadal annihilated world number one Novak Djokovic of Serbia 6-0 6-2 7-5 in the French Open last to guarantee a record-equalling twentieth Grand Slam title on Sunday.
With his record-improving thirteenth victory at Roland Garros, world number two Nadal is currently attached with Swiss Roger Federer as the player with the most men’s singles significant titles.
Nadal was the early assailant as he gagged Djokovic to win the initial set in ruthless style having made just two unforced mistakes. He at that point kept a solid hold on a repressed Djokovic in the second set under the top of court Philippe Chatrier.
Djokovic, who was hoping to win his eighteenth Grand Slam title, revolted in the third set, crushing spirit for 3-3, just to drop serve on a twofold deficiency in the eleventh game before Nadal proceeded to pack his 100th triumph at Roland Garros with an ace.
