Nadal has won his 11th French Open title on a warm, humid Sunday afternoon, an achievement that reduced him to tears of joy in Paris.
This victory means the past six Grand Slam titles have been won by either Nadal or Federer with the next generation of players finding it hard to break the veterans' stranglehold on the game.
The Spaniard had been the favorite to win the second Slam of the year, after warming up with three clay-court titles in Monte Carlo, Barcelona, and Rome.
The Majorcan has an air of invincibility at Roland Garros, losing only twice in 87 matches since making his debut in 2005, and again he delivered on his favorite stage.
“Winning here after having the clay-court season that I had is emotional and that gives me calm and confidence to keep going,” said Nadal. “If you tell me seven, eight years ago that I will be here, 32 years old, having this trophy with me again, I would tell you that is something almost impossible, but here we are. I am not much worried about the future.
“I feel very lucky to all of the things that have happened to me. I am enjoying that moment. And that doesn’t mean that I will not keep fighting for more chances in the future, in the next tournaments.”
