Rafael Nadal smokes Novak Djokovic to win 2020 French Open
11th October 2020

Rafael Nadal’s mastery on the clay continued Sunday in the French Open final.

Nadal dominated Novak Djokovic in straight sets, 6-0, 6-2, 7-5, to win the men’s 2020 French Open title, giving him his 20th career grand slam victory, tying him with Roger Federer for the most men’s majors ever.

The 34-year-old Nadal now has 13 French Open championships.

The match was so lopsided at first that in the second set, John McEnroe said on the NBC broadcast, “This isn’t even a match. I can’t believe what I’m seeing.” But Djokovic finally put up a fight in the third set, taking a 5-4 lead. But Nadal held serve and then broke Djokovic to go up 6-5 before serving out for the win.

“Today you showed you are the king of the clay,” Djokovic said to Nadal in an on-court interview after the match.
