Rafael Nadal clinches 7th French Open title

Vamos to all Rafael Nadal fans!

After the match was halted the night before because of rain, Nadal didn't want to delay the match further. He defeated Novak Djokovic 6-4, 6-3, 2-6, 7-5 when the Serbian and world no.1 double-faulted.

Nadal now goes into the history books by becoming the first man ever to win seven French Open titles, surpasses Bjorn Borg's record.

Nadal also moved level with Borg and Rod Laver on 11 Grand Slam titles.

"It's an honour but the most important thing is this tournament. It's unforgettable, one of the most special moments in my career," he said of overtaking the great Swede.
