The Pride of Spain: Rafael Nadal wins 13th French Open title, ties Roger Federer with 20th Grand Slam


PARIS: Rafael Nadal won his 13th French Open title on Sunday, crushing Novak Djokovic in straight sets (6-0, 6-2, 7-5) in the 2020 men’s final.

The championship adds to Nadal’s record for most French Open titles, and the 34-year-old is now boasts a 100-2 career record at Roland Garros.

Spaniard Nadal beat Novak Djokovic 6-0 6-2 7-5 in the Roland Garros final on Sunday to draw level with Roger Federer on 20 Grand Slam titles.

“It’s an amazing achievement,” Murray told reporters in Cologne ahead of an ATP 250 event. “I don’t think what (Nadal) has done at Roland Garros will ever be beaten.

“He’s one short of winning the same amount at just one tournament as Pete Sampras did in Grand Slams.

“I think it’s one of the best records in sport, maybe the best.

“I don’t think it will ever be repeated and I actually don’t think anyone will get close to it.”
