Paris: If there were any insane doubts as to the domination of Rafael Nadal on a clay court, the 2020 French Open final at Roland Garros has put them to rest. Hailed as one of the greatest male players in tennis history, Nadal won in a spectacular fashion against the world no.1 Novak Djokovic. Nadal handed the defeat to the Serbian in straight sets winning 6-0 6-2 7-5. By doing so, he has again proved why a clay court is his own dominion. No player in the history of tennis has come close to reaching Nadal’s 13 titles at Roland Garros. He also equalled Roger Federer’s men’s grand slam title wins by thrashing the Serbian player Djokovic in straight sets. Nadal equalled the records of 20 grand slam titles by Roger Federer. Novak Djokovic is behind three grand slam wins at 17 but for now, the modern tennis history has seen the best and peak of Nadal. And there are no signs of abating of form in Nadal and he could only become more efficient as successful.

Winning at Roland Garros is not a new thing for Nadal. He has had won 12 times here before but the manner how he absolutely dominated this year’s tournament gives food for thought. How long would it take to equal or cross Nadal’s records at Roland Garros. Is that ambition even reasonable? The future would tell, and records in any sport are meant to be broken. But, until then Rafael Nadal is the indisputable ruler of Roland Garros.
