On Philippe Chatrier Court No. 1 in Paris, Rafael Nadal of Spain won his ninth French Open title by beating Novak Djokovic of Serbia 3-6, 7-5, 6-2, 6-4. This is Nadal's fifth consecutive clay-court championship victory and eclipses his own mark from 2005-08 and that of Bjorn Borg who won four straight from 1978-81. Borg was on hand to present the championship trophy. Nadal, 28, now owns 14 Grand Slam titles tying him with Pete Sampras in second place on the all-time list behind only Roger Federer of Switzerland with 17.


Yesterday, Maria Sharapova of Russia defeated Simona Halep of Romania 6-4 6-7 (5/7) 6-4 to win her second French Open title in three years. It was the first three-set women's final at Roland Garros since 2001. This is Ms. Sharapova's fifth Grand Slam title since she won Wimbledon in 2004 at the age of 17.

Nadal had an epic match. Didn't watch the ladies.
