Nadal Wins Record Seventh French Open
Rafael Nadal today won his record seventh French Open tennis title.
His 6-4, 6-3, 2-6, 7-5 win over Novak Djokovic had been delayed a day, when rain forced suspension of play on Sunday.
Nadal, from Spain, had shared the record of 6 French titles with Sweden's Bjorn Borg. He's now won 11 Grand Slam titles (the French, U.S., Australian and British opens).
Djokovic, a Serbian, had been trying to win his fourth straight major title.
