FRENCH OPEN 2018: KING OF CLAY REMAINS UNBEATEN

World number one Rafael Nadal has won his 11th French Open title, beating Austrian Dominic Thiem in straight sets 6-4, 6-3, 6-2 at Roland Garros.

Top seed Nadal claimed a dominant victory over Thiem, despite suffering an injury scare when he suffered cramp in his left hand when 3-1 up in the third set.

Nadal’s win extends his record of titles at the French Open to 11, and means he has won 17 Grand Slams in total, just three behind Swiss great Roger Federer.

Nadal has won each of the finals he has contested at Roland Garros, and has won 11 of the last 14 French Open titles.
