Rafael Nadal has now won the 2020 French Open after an exciting match against Novak Djokovic, MySportDab reports.
Nadal is now level with Roger Federer with twenty Grand Slam titles after his win today.
He won against the world number one in a 6-0, 7-2, 7-5 thrilling match in two hours and 41 minutes.
Djokovic tried his usual chess tactics with the dropshots backfired seriously and it caused him the defeat.
It was nothing like the match most Tennis fans would have expected.
The roof was closed due to the afternoon rain for the first ever in a Roland Garros final.
The first set was shocking and will now go down in history because it ended in a 6-0 score.
‘Congratulations to Novak for another fantastic tournament. Sorry today,’ he said.
‘In Australia, he has got one against me some times before. Today it was different. It’s part of the sport, we have played many times. One day you win, the next day you lose. I wish you all the best for the future, Novak.’
