THE GREATEST!! Rafael Nadal Defeats Thiem To Win 18th Grand Slam Title

Rafael Nadal swept to a historic 12th Roland Garros title and 18th Grand Slam crown on Sunday with a 6-3, 5-7, 6-1, 6-1 victory over Austria’s Dominic Thiem.

The 33-year-old Spaniard becomes the first player ever, to win the same Slam 12 times after seeing off Thiem in a repeat of the 2018 final.

Nadal is now just two behind Roger Federer’s all-time record of 20 majors and three ahead of Novak Djokovic, who was knocked out by Thiem in the semi-finals.

The world number two also took his Paris record to an astonishing 93 wins and just two losses, having previously won the title in 2005-2008, 2010-2014, 2017 and 2018.

It also gave Nadal an 82nd career title and 950th match win.
