Rafael Nadal Routs Novak Djokovic at French Open for 20th Grand Slam

 Nadal made astonishingly quick work of them both in the French Open final, annihilating Djokovic, the world’s No. 1 player, 6-0, 6-2, 7-5 to equal Federer’s record of 20 Grand Slam singles titles.

It was arguably Nadal’s finest performance at Roland Garros, which is quite a statement considering that he had already won 12 Grand Slam singles title on the same rectangle of red clay.

There was nothing unlucky about No. 13. He was on task and on target from the very start, ripping groundstroke winners, running down drop shots and keeping his unforced errors to a strict minimum. He made just two in the opening set and 14 in the match, giving Djokovic little time or space to find his range.
