RAFAEL NADAL HAS REWRITTEN HISTORY BOOKS IN TENNIS,
ONCE MORE. THE ‘KING OF CLAY’ HAS WON AN UNPRECEDENTED
12TH FRENCH OPEN TITLE, A FEAT BY ANY HUMAN SO UNREAL,
MANY BELIEVE IT MAY NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN.

"STILL CAN'T BELIEVE IT", DECLARES THE SPANISH BULL FOLLOWING HIS HISTORIC TRIUMPH, HIS VICTORY HASN'T SUNKEN IN YET, PROBABLY NEVER WILL.

JUST TO PUT IN PERSPECTIVE, NEXT TO RAFAEL NADAL, THE GREAT BJORN BORG HAS WON 6 FRENCH OPEN TITLES - - THE SECOND BEST IN THE TOURNAMENT'S 128-YEAR HISTORY, NOT TO MENTION THE AMATEUR TITLES IN THE EARLY 1900'S. ROGER FEDERER - - THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME - - HAS WON ONLY ONE FRENCH OPEN TITLE, WHILE THE GREAT PETE SAMPRAS, HAS WON NONE.

DOMINIC THIEM, THE ONLY MAN WHO HAS PREVIOUSLY BEATEN RAFAEL NADAL ON CLAY FOUR TIMES, PROMISED A LITTLE GLIMMER OF HOPE FOR HIM TO STOP NADAL'S HISTORIC ONSLAUGHT HAVING BROKEN EARLY IN THE 1ST SET, BUT ONLY TO BE BROKEN BACK QUICKLY BY NADAL, FOLLOWED BY ANOTHER CRUSHING BREAK IMMEDIATELY AFTER, CLOSING OUT THE 1ST SET, 6-3.

DOMINIC THIEM MANAGED TO SLING BACK A SHOT AT NADAL, NARROWLY STEALING THE 2ND SET, 5 -7.

THE ENTIRE CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL MATCH BETWEEN THE TWO IS A GRIPPING, HIGH-TENSION BATTLE, EACH SHOT SEEMED A LIFE ON-THE-LINE.

BUT RAFAEL NADAL'S INCREDIBLE POWER AND GENIUS ON CLAY, MADE THE FINAL SCORES LOOK SIMPLE, WHEN IN FACT THEY NEVER WERE, 6 - 3; 5 -7; 6 - 1; 6 - 1, IN A HEART-PUMPING 3-HOUR HIGH-OCTANE DUEL IN PARIS.

AT 33, RAFAEL NADAL COULD VERY WELL SURPASS HIS OWN GIGANTIC RECORD OF 12 FRENCH OPEN CROWNS.

HE PROBABLY COULD WIN 13 OR 14. OR EVEN 15, WHY NOT ?

BUT ONE THING IS SURE IN THIS WORLD, NO HUMAN WOULD EVER WIN 12 FRENCH OPEN CROWNS, AGAIN.
