#Tennis: Nadal Equals Federer’s All-Time Record Of 20 Grand Slam Titles, As He Wins French Open

By Chukwuka Joseph (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Rafael Nadal vanquished Serbia’s Novak Djokovic 6-0, 6-2, 7-5 to win his 13th French Open and draw level with perennial foe, Roger Federer’s all-time record of 20 Grand Slam titles on Sunday.

Djokovic’s humbling defeat halted his hopes of an 18th Slam and of becoming the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to win all four majors twice.

Nadal, 34, claimed his 100th match win at Roland Garros against just two defeats since his 2005 debut. The Spaniard, the oldest champion in Paris since Andres Gimeno in 1972, claimed the title without dropping a set.
