Nadal celebrates with ball kids in Paris

Nadal hits a backhand

Nadal ecstatic after the victory said: "It is incredible". Show up. Give me something I want to talk about. "I feel sorry because he deserves it".

"So he will have normally a good chance of winning and being the favourite for the next three years".

The Austrian, though, was having success here and there, and he immediately got back on level after Nadal broke for 3-2.

Before the French Open, he had given up lost three Matches on clay, prior to or at the tournaments in Brisbane and Indian Wells.

The second set turned into a serving fest as both guys cruised in their service games quickly and efficiently.

For the twelfth Time, Nadal was in the finals of Roland Garros, for the twelfth Time victor Nadal said.

"The first set has been so tough with high intensity and great points".

Nadal received a cheque for around $2.6 million while Thiem took home a cheque for $1.3 million.

"He improves and develops his game", Thiem said. 'But Nadal remains Nadal - and beating him on sand over three winning sets remains one of the biggest challenges across all sports. So first of all, I have to get there. Then I played the way I should play in the second set, very aggressive.

"After two sets, I dropped a little bit in my level". But can the Spaniard catch up with his big rival at the age of 33 or even surpass him?

"We'll see, but, yes, I think so".

"There has to be a reason why he's that successful". So definitely he's one of the greatest of all time. As much as I respect Roger, Rafa, Novak - who else? It is also 950th win of his career. That's what I meant yesterday. "Last year I was one point away to the final".


Federer managed to outplay Nadal in the winners department although that proved not to be enough, spraying nearly 60 unforced errors and missing a chance to at least force the fifth set and push Rafa to the limits. Thiem the opposite with 31 winners to 38 unforced. "Rafa won here at 19".

- Winds of up to 40 km/h had Federer likening the conditions on Chatrier to a sandpit as he lost to Nadal in straight sets. "I enjoy playing here", said Nadal laconically, after he had greeted visitors to the last Open act on the Sunday afternoon before with his wonderful Spanish-tinged "Bonschu" (Bonjour).

"He had served well.

But the important thing seemed to be not to give him the advantage when he was serving well and I had problems returning".

Nadal now sits just two adrift of Roger Federer's record haul of 20 major titles. I have been able to be very close to win another title there.

"When you're playing in hurricane kind of conditions, it's hard to perform your best", said an angry Djokovic. So I don't see the life.

"It's a motivation, yes, but it's not my obsession". If you ask me whether I would like it, of course; is it a goal in my career, no.

"Then I went to the bathroom". It's not the way in which I view the sport, and it's not the way in which I consider my sports career.

"Mentally, I was down".

"But I don't think my future will be worth any more if I equal Federer's record or if I do something like Djokovic or whatever". "Eternal legend of Roland Garros".

Since Nadal won his first title at Roland Garros in 2005, Andy Murray, Stan Wawrinka, Marin Cilic and Juan Martin Del Potro are the only players to have broken the big three's dominance, and all have now passed their 30th birthdays.
