Tennis superstar Rafael Nadal earned his record seventh French Open title this morning, beating Novak Djokovic 6-4, 6-3, 2-6, 7-5.
The match was delayed briefly during the fourth set because of a rain shower, but Nadal quickly regained himself to beat “The Joker”.
Congratulations to Nadal, who has now won seven of the past eight French Open titles.

To Mac's question of whether Nadal wanted Novak to be the one he beat in the final. "No! I wanted another one, easier!"
