“Rafa is the best player on clay. Everything happens for a reason. I could have lost earlier in this tournament. It’s my 1st final here at the French Open. I wouldn’t change anything.”
Rafael Nadal makes history by becoming the first person to win 7 titles at the French Open, after defeating world number one, Novak Djokovic, 6-4, 6-3, 2-6, 7-5
The men’s singles final (Nadal v. Djokovic) has been postponed until tomorrow due to weather conditions.
Play is suspended once again in the final at the French Open, as Nadal leads 2 sets to 1 against Novak Djokovic, but the world number one has a break of serve in the fourth set.
Maria Sharapova defeats Sara Errani, 6-3, 6-2, to be crowned the 2012 French Open champion. Her win means that she now holds all four grand slam titles (2004 Wimbledon, 2006 US Open, 2008 Australian Open).
