Nadal wins 11th Paris title amid late drama

Rafael Nadal into French Open finals against Dominic Thiem

The Spaniard was at his awe-inspiring best as he trampled Austrian Dominic Thiem to snatch a record-extending 11th French Open title with a 6-4, 6-3, 6-2 win on Sunday.

- Nadal won his 17th Grand Slam title in his 24th major final and is three titles away from the men's record held by his great rival Roger Federer.

Chief among those praising Nadal was defender Ramos.

Spain's La Liga official account also congratulated the tennis great. A clay court specialist who had made the semi-finals at Paris over the last two years, and the final this time around; someone who had beaten Nadal on clay three times in the past, though never in a five-setter.

After an intense claycourt season in which he also collected an 11th Monte Carlo and Barcelona crown and suffered only one defeat in 27 matches, Nadal will take time out for fishing in his native Mallorca before the grasscourt swing.

Sunday marked the first time Nadal had faced a player from a younger tennis generation in a Grand Slam final.

This historical analysis doesn't lend itself to fancying Thiem's chances of denying Nadal an 11th French Open title this afternoon, and neither did my model pricing either.

"He's very aggressive, with big shots", Nadal said in halting French before switching to English. And, of course, Nadal has owned the tournament that history will care about most: the French Open.

"And the fact that I didn't give up after the one previous year here [in which she lost in three sets to Jelena Ostapenko] means that I'm strong inside and I do this just because I love this sport".

Rafael Nadal briefly interrupted the French Open final against Dominic Thiem in the third set with an apparent problem with his left wrist.

Just like that, Nadal was off on a five-game burst to lead 3-0 in the second set.

He beat the Swiss master, Roger Federer, when he was just 17 years old. "But at the same time, it's true that I went through tough moments, a lot of times in terms of injuries".

The trophy was carried into the Court Philippe Chatrier in a brown box during a brief ceremony before play begins and unveiled by the two stars of music and screen. As we head into Wimbledon, Federer and Nadal are the tournament's two favorites.

Despite conceding a 2-0 deficit so quickly, Thiem masterminded points in the following game by whipping rapid forehand winners to restore parity and kept the Spaniard at bay as he spotted some weaknesses in Nadal's stronghold.

"I'd like to dedicate this victory to Jana Novotna", said Krejcikova in honor of her compatriot and 1998 Wimbledon champion who died of cancer in November a year ago at age 49.

"If you tell me seven, eight years ago that I will be here. having this trophy with me again, I will tell you that is something nearly impossible", Nadal said.

Nadal did not play for more than two months after the Australian Open in January - where he withdrew from his quarter-final against Marin Cilic because of a hip injury.
