The king of clay defends his kingdom.
Rafael Nadal have successfully defended his double Roland Garros championship by defeating Roger Federer in 4 sets of 6-3, 4-6, 6-3, 6-4.
Rafael Nadal almost went perfect this year, the only set he dropped during the whole tournament was the second set to Roger Federer in this final. Nadal wins the Roland Garros tournament for the third time in a row. The last player to accomplish such a streak was the great Bjorn Borg.
Roger Federer will have to try to grab his first Roland Garros title next year. His situation looks like Ivan Lendl's Wimbledon grand final failures. The 1980's number one player always had Boris Becker in his way in the Wimbledon finals. Just like Lendl, Roger Federer has Rafael Nadal in his way at Roland Garros.
Congratulation Rafa for this third Roland Garros title in a row.
