Nadal Dominates Federer in the French Open Again!

"Winning four times in a row is
incredible."- Rafael Nadal

Rafael Nadal beat Roger Federer in the French Open, as he won six consecutive
games early in the match and swept the final nine games to win 6-1, 6-3,
This was Federer's worst loss in his 173 Grand Slam matches, and the
Roland Garros men's final in terms of games since 1977.

No. 2-ranked
Nadal lost only 41 games in seven rounds of the French Open.

Spaniard became the second man to win four consecutive French
Open titles. Bjorn
Borg did it in 1978-81.

Nadal improved to 28-0 at Roland Garros, where he has won 83 of 90 sets. Only six-time champion Borg won more French Open men's titles. And Nadal became the first man since Borg in 1980 to win the tournament without a dropping set.

"He dominated the tournament like never before, like Bjorn," Federer said.
