Rafael Nadal 'The King of Clay' Wins 11th Roland Garros Title
By SENATUS Magazine | 11 June 2018

Rafael Nadal charged to this 11th French Open at Roland Garros in indomitable form, wining with a straight-sets demolition of Dominic Thiem, The top seeded Spaniard faced the 7th seeded Austrian, the only player to have beaten him on clay in the past two years, and yet once a competive first set went the way of the world No 1, Nadal's 'undecima' never looked in any doubt.

Nadal's incredible record in Paris now reads 86 wins and two defeats. He has won every final he has reached, and in those 11 finals he has dropped just six sets.

The 32 year old also equal's Margaret Court's record of most victories at one major with his 11th French Open success (Margaret Court's run coming at the Aussie Open). It moves him on to 17 slams overall and three off Roger Federer.

In the last year and a half, Federer and Nadal have dominated the slams again the last year and a half. These include:

2017 Australian - Federer | 2017 French - Nadal | 2017 Wimbledon - Federer | 2017 US - Nadal | 2018 Australian - Federer | 2018 French - Nadal
