Spanish tennis star dismissed Serbia’s Novak Djokovic to emerge champion of the 2020 French Open on Sunday.
Nadal overwhelmed Djokovic 6-0, 6-2 7-5 to win his 13th title at Roland Garros.
Also, he draws level with Tennis great Roger Federer at 20 Grand Slam wins.
Djokovic was hoping to become the first man in the Open era to win all four Grand Slams at least twice, but he never stood a chance against a determined Nadal.
The Serbian was returning to Grand Slam action after being controversially disqualified from the US Open last month for accidentally striking a line judge with a ball.
Nadal lost his first game in second set opener, but that didn’t dent his focus and he was soon back on top against an overwhelmed opponent.
Nadal rattled off the next five games as he rolled back the years on the way to clinching the second set 6-2.
Djokovic showed resilience to come back into the third set, and when Nadal broke him in the fifth game then the writing seemed to be on the wall, only for Djokovic to break back for 3-3.
Nadal eventually ground him down though, breaking in the 11th game of the third set before going on to serve for the match.Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
