Rafael Nadal defeated Roger Federer to create history @ the French Open

Jose Higueras, Roger Federer's coach is so fired!

Honestly speaking, it's quite a pain in the ass to see Federer not up to his game in this year's men's final. It's not even close to the previous years whereby you know Federer had a chance if he plays with the right tactics.

It's almost unbelievable that Rafael Nadal able to crush Federer in just three sets! The final result is 6-1, 6-3, 6-0!
This win is Nadal's 11th in 17 meetings with Federer and his ninth in 10 claycourt clashes.

I can totally feel Federer's agony. It's the only Grand Slam that he still hasn't own.

If you notice, Nadal did not fall on the clay and celebrate like he used to be out of respect for Federer. I mean, to lost 0-6 is not what our world no. 1 player would expect. But in a big match like this, there's no mercy. I have to give credit to Nadal for his humble post match celebration.

For the past few months, Nadal has improved so much especially on his backhand and serve. At the age of just 22, Nadal has already won his fourth successive French Open title. With that he's joining tennis legend Bjorn Borg (1978-1981) as the only man to win 4 Roland Garros trophies in a row.

Now the question is, will Nadal be ready to take on Roger Federer on the grass surface? Let's see how they perform on their first grass court tournament of the year at The Queen's Club.
