Rafael Nadal beats Novak Djokovic to win seventh French Open

Rafael Nadal won a record seventh French Open title after ruthlessly snuffing out Novak Djokovic's comeback to win 6-4 6-3 2-6 7-5 in a rain-affected final. 

According to BBC Sports, Nadal resumed leading 6-4 6-3 2-6 1-2, but his uncharacteristic wobble late on Sunday had fuelled Djokovic's belief.

The Spaniard broke back in the first game of the day however, and then piled pressure on an unsettled Djokovic.

The Serb finally folded with a double fault to hand Nadal an 11th Grand Slam.

Having drawn level with Bjorn Borg on six Roland Garros titles last year, the victory gave Nadal sole ownership of the landmark, and the 26-year-old is likely to have plenty of opportunities to stretch further clear.

Moreover, the only three men to have more Grand Slam victories - Roger Federer with 16, Pete Sampras on 14 and Roy Emerson on 12 - will also now be in his sights.
