Rafael Nadal Wins French Open

Novak Djokovic may be the best player in men’s tennis—but don’t tell Rafael Nadal that. Despite losing three straight major finals to Djokovic, the Spaniard knocked off the No. 1 player in the world at the French Open Monday, as play resumed after Sunday’s rain delay. When the match was suspended, Djokovic had just surged back from a two-set deficit, winning 6–2 and up a break in the fourth set. Djokovic was attempting to pull off a “Djokovic slam,” or holding all four major titles at the same time. Nadal won his seventh French Open title, moving him past Björn Borg for the most at the tournament. He’s only lost one match in seven years at Roland Garros.
