French Open | Nadal remains supreme, despite cramp

Rafa Nadal secured an extraordinary 11th French Open title and improved his total overall to 17 career Grand Slam victories, ending what has been a remarkable fortnight for the Spaniard who has displayed amazing resilience to set a record which is unlikely to be broken. And as things stand, no one will be betting he won’t make it 12 next year!

That resilience was on display during the final against Dominic Thiem who was eventually downed 6-4 6-3 6-2 after two-hours 42-minutes for his 86th win on the Roland Garros clay, as he completed the match during the third set with a badly cramping racket hand.
