Nadal is king, again.

09Jun08

Rafael Nadal thrashed world number one Roger Federer to win a fourth successive French Open title on Sunday. The Spaniard, 22, won 6-1 6-3 6-0 in one hour 48 minutes to become the first man since Bjorn Borg in 1981 to win four Roland Garros titles in a row. Federer had lost the previous two finals to Nadal, and was broken at the start of each set this time as he fell well below his best form. Nadal becomes the seventh man to win a Grand Slam without dropping a set. It was the heaviest defeat of Federer’s career in Grand Slam tournaments and suggested he is as far as ever from fulfilling his dream of winning all four major titles. “Rafa is very, very strong and he dominates this tournament like never before,” said Federer. “Congratulations Rafa.”
