Nadal wins another French Open, again vs Federer
Question of the Day
The top-ranked Spaniard won his record-equaling sixth French Open title by beating 16-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer 7-5, 7-6 (3), 5-7, 6-1 Sunday.
“You can’t win something more special, no?” Nadal said. “It’s the highest level of tournaments in the tennis world.”
Nadal won four straight titles at Roland Garros starting in 2005. But in 2009, the top-ranked Spaniard lost in the fourth round to Robin Soderling. Coincidentally, or maybe not so coincidentally, that was the year that Federer won the French Open to complete a career Grand Slam.
“For me it’s something very special (to) equal the six titles of Bjorn, for sure,” said Nadal, who completed his own career Grand Slam at last year’s U.S. Open. “But for me, the most important thing is win Roland Garros, no?”
He’s also about six months younger than Federer when he won his 10th.
But Federer wasn’t ready to concede the title to Nadal just because he entered the match 0-4 overall against his biggest rival at the French Open _ three losses in the final and one in the 2005 semifinals.
But during the following changeover, Nadal called for a trainer to look at his left foot. After some powder was applied to the underside, Nadal ran back on court and quickly found himself facing a set point.
That’s when the match changed.
