Rafael Nadal beat Novak Djokovic in straight sets to win the French Open 2020 men’s singles title on Sunday.

The defending champion was all business in the grand finale as he registered a 6-0, 6-2, 7-5 win over the world number one to claim his 13th title at Roland Garros.

He also equals Switzerland tennis legend Roger Federer’s tally of 20 Grand Slam titles.  

The Spaniard started off the match in a dominating fashion and took the opening set in 48 minutes without conceding a game.

He then capitalised on two break points to go take a two-set lead in the match.

An exchange of breaks took place in the fifth and sixth game of the third set with the duo taking games off each other’s serves. Nadal broke his rival again to go 6-5 up and win the next game on to complete the victory.

‘Everything to me’

Nadal praised Djokovic’s performance in the tournament.

“Congrats to Novak for another great tournament. Sorry for today,” Nadal was quoted saying by the AFP after the match. “We’ve played plenty of times together – one day one wins, another the other. After all the things I have been through in my career with injuries, I could not have done it without my family.”

Nadal said he wasn’t even thinking about matching Federer’s record.

“It’s been a very tough year. Winning here means everything to me so it’s not about equalling Roger on 20, for me today it’s just a Roland Garros victory,” said Nadal who had skipped the US Open due to the global health crisis and was playing just his second tournament since February.

“Roland Garros means everything to me. I spent most of the most important moments of my tennis career here. Just playing here is a true inspiration. The love story I have with this court and city is unbelievable.”
