Rafael Nadal wins record 7th French Open title

Rafael Nadal won a record seventh Roland Garros title defeating Novak Djokovic 6-4, 6-3, 2-6, 7-5 and in the process becoming the most-crowned man in Open Era history at the French Open.

Nadal thus becomes the undisputed King of Clay, overtaking the great Bjorn Borg who won the French Open six times.
