But ultimately, a rested Federer is an irrepressible force at Wimbledon, just as Nadal is at Roland-Garros.

The Spaniard's reign on the clay of Roland Garros has been unprecedented and has been one of the surest things in tennis history.

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.

Ruthless Nadal proved far too good for Kevin Anderson as he claimed a 16th Grand Slam title at the US Open. "As everybody knows, for me is the most important tournament of the year".

As he sat down in the French Open lounge on Saturday, Günter Bresnik, Dominic Thiem's coach, was asked about Thiem's upcoming French Open final against Rafael Nadal, the finest clay court tennis player of all time.

'So I just gonna keep fighting for things and that's it.

Rafael Nadal won his 11th French Open title on Sunday, beating out Austria's Dominic Thiem and becoming the first man to win 11 titles at any Grand Slam tournament.

Nadal earned another break early in the third set and looked to be home free to his 11th title from there.

Sunday's win was Nadal's 17th major trophy, only putting him three behind Roger Federer.




Nadal needed five match points in a tense final game, eventually completing the job when Thiem fired a backhand long.

After winning 26 of his 27 matches throughout the European claycourt season and 81 of his last 86 sets on clay, there is nothing to suggest Nadal's domination in Paris will end soon.

His lead was reminiscent of their semifinal at the French Open past year, when Nadal also held the early advantage. However, calculations reveal, Roger Federer might topple the Spaniard in about three matches at Stuttgart Open.

Nadal plays tournaments while wearing the limited edition Richard Mille watch which is valued at R9.4 million.

If Thiem is, as he is widely regarded, the second best clay-court player in the world then he probably has a few more of these pummellings to look forward to at least until Nadal, 32, finally calls it a day. Thiem makes his second double fault in the game. "I did it in the past when I was much younger, quicker, because I played back to back".

Thiem says he is "confident" his first appearance in a Grand Slam final will not be his last.

Rafael Nadal has for a long time been the King of Clay, but he's taken his dominance to new heights with his 11th French Open win.

According to Perrotta, Nadal has lost two Richard Mille watches that were stolen (one was later recovered) and almost lost a third when a fellow player found one in a locker room.

In Nadal's case, that way now leads on to the grass, where his last appearance in the quarter-finals of Wimbledon came seven years ago.
