Monday, 11 June 2018 08:53

Rafael Nadal claimed an eleventh French Open title with a 6-4, 6-3, 6-2 demolition of Dominic Thiem despite a worrying injury scare in the closing stages of the final.

 

The thirty-two year-old world number one now has seventeen Grand Slam titles, just three behind great rival Roger Federer.

 

Nadal endured a nervous conclusion to the final, however, when he needed treatment in the fourth game of the third set for a finger injury before sealing victory on a fifth match point when Thiem fired a backhand long.
