Nadal routs Thiem to claim 11th French Open title

Roland Garros final day recap Rafael Nadal's dynasty

Roland Garros final day recap Rafael Nadal's dynasty

He has now also joined Federer and Novak Djokovic in passing the $100 million prize money barrier.

However, the exchange - with over £1.2 million traded on the match already - has Nadal as a [1.26] favourite, which is around a 6% difference in implied odds percentage and certainly enough to be actionable value.

Before her loss to Halep, Stephens, 25, eliminated Madison Keys, 23, in the first all-American semifinal at the French Open since 2002, when Williams defeated Jennifer Capriati. "I don't know how it's going to be but for the moment I'll be off for a few days and I'll try to get ready, recover and go to play on grass".

"There is a reason why he won 11 times here", said Thiem, a 24-year-old Austrian appearing in his first major final.

Nadal showed he still has a burning desire for success at the age of 32, but said he is not motivated by chasing down long-time rival Federer. The Spaniard officially withdrew before the start of his third-round match in 2016.

At 4-4 Nadal hit a second serve that bounced before it reached the net but he shrugged that off to hold. However, here past year in the semi-finals, Nadal destroyed Thiem, losing just seven games in a rout, but it is worth mentioning that Thiem triumphed in their last meeting in Madrid last month, in the quarter-finals. "No words can express what we feel about Rafa's game and what he has done for the game of tennis on a worldwide basis".

The number of consecutive sets won on clay by Nadal, breaking the previous record for most consecutive sets won on a single surface by McEnroe, who won 49 on carpet in 1984. For all the hand-wringing in years past over what would happen to USA women's tennis after the Williams sisters, they seem to be in pretty good shape.

Rafael Nadal celebrates by kissing the trophy after winning the final against Dominic Thiem at the 2018 French Open June 10, 2018.

Whatever the problem, his dominance remained and a love game took him to 4-2 before he eventually sealed victory on a fifth match point when Thiem fired another backhand long.

Thiem is contesting his first Grand Slam final.

"I think all players on the tour have to congratulate him for his success".

Thiem undid all his good work in the next game, netting an easy volley on the first point and gifting Nadal three more unforced errors to hand over the first set.

The Spaniard edged an intense opening set, tightening his grip in the second.

Serving to stay in the match at 4-5, the Austrian allowed mistakes to creep into his game.

While unpopular, Nadal's comments have resulted in more of a rekindling of an old debate rather than sparking a new one. He also was aware that Federer might go four clear of Nadal in a month at Wimbledon. It clearly impacted his serve moving forward, but not his ground strokes.

The world No. 1 went up 40-0 during Thiem's first service of the third set.
