Victory for Nadal!

Nadal

Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal just claimed his 20th Grand Slam title at the FrenchOpen. He defeated Novak Djokovic, who is said to be the best singles tennis player in the world (currently). With this win, Nadal was also able to tie Roger Federer’s world record for most grand slam titles (20).

King Of Clay
The game was played on a clay tennis court, which really suits Nadal’s style.
He is known as the KingOfClay for holding the most victories in the French Open, winning 100 matches and only losing twice in his career, while collecting 13 titles along the way.

It is really difficult to win a Grand Slam. After Nadal and Federer, the next best record belongs to Djokovic at 17. Famous past tennis stars such as Peter Sampras won 14 and Andre Agassi won 8.

Facts on the French Open:
?The French Open is also known as Roland-Garros, named after a French pilot who fought in World War I.
?The French Open, along with the Australian Open, Wimbledon and US Open, are known as the Grand Slam tournaments as they are the most prestigious and competitive tournaments in the world. They have been played for about 100 years.
?Clay courts create special challenges for tennis players because the surface is slippery. Also, the clay pebbles slow down the ball while producing high bounces. Other tennis courts are typically played on hard courts, grass courts, and carpet courts.

Nifty Nadal Facts:
?During the season, Nadal practices up to 4 hours every day.
?At the final of the 2005 French Open, Nadal became the third men’s tennis player to win the Grand Slam in his first try.
