Rafael Nadal ties Roger Federer with 20 Majors after getting the win in the French Open

New York. Rafael Nadal defeats Novak Djokovic 6-0, 6-2, and 7-5 to win the Mens French Open and tied Roger Federer with 20 Grand Slam victories in his career.



Nadal had an almost perfect match against Djokovic. Nadal was very sharp in his attacks against Djokovic . Nadal won 67% of his first serves and was making it hard for Djokovic to get his feet set and get into rhythm. For an anticipated match, the match was lopsided as Nadal kept his foot on the pedal and came out victorious against his friend.


After Nadal defeated Djokovic, Nadal tied Roger Federer with 20 majors, as well as got his 100th win in his career. "It's been a very tough year. Winning here means everything to me so it's not about equalling Roger on 20, for me today it's just a Roland Garros victory," said Nadal.


"Roland Garros means everything to me. I spent most of the most important moments of my tennis career here. Just playing here is a true inspiration. The love story I have with this court and city is unbelievable."
