Nadal beats Thiem for 11th French Open title

Report Roger Federer to drop Nike for US$30m Uniqlo deal

With injuries keeping him at bay Nadal has plans to return to Paris in 2019 and try to win his 12th French Open title. But how about 15?

The duo have met nine times throughout their career, all on clay, with Nadal taking six meetings to Thiem's three.

Nadal did not play for more than two months after the Australian Open in January - where he withdrew from his quarter-final against Marin Cilic because of a hip injury. "Of course, I have ambition, I have passion for what I am doing, but I never have been insane about all this kind of stuff", Nadal told a news conference. I feel very lucky to all of the things that have happened to me.

But he could not match Nadal's point-by-point consistency and intensity on Sunday. But Nadal himself wasn't too bothered.

"But I never have been insane about all this kind of stuff".

The queen, who wore a sky blue coat and dress by Stuart Parvin and a hat by Angela Kelly, traveled alone in an Ascot Landau. She also received some help from Samantha Cohen, an Australian-born palace adviser who has worked closely with the Queen.


"No, you can't be frustrated always if somebody have more money than you, if somebody have a bigger house than you, if somebody have more grand slams than you. You have to do your way". I was very scared but that's sport - it was very humid.

Tennis is lucky to have Nadal. This, though, is Nadal's court, the place he has dominated like no other.

Nadal retained the momentum in the second set, breaking his opponent in the second game and holding out to edge closer to yet another title at Roland Garros.

But from the moment Nadal broke serve in the 10th game to win the opening set, Thiem's belief ebbed away. It added more voices by the time 2008 rolled around. At 2-1 in the fourth set, Nadal stopped serving during a game because he couldn't straighten his left middle finger. He also regained the world number one ranking for the first time since July 2009.

"I'm just glad I'm not playing today", said Rosewall in a nod to the raw power of Nadal.

Federation Internationale de Football Association delays talks on possible 48-team Qatar World Cup
A 48-team World Cup would require extra stadiums and could lead to Qatar sharing hosting duties with Middle East neighbours. The 2018 FIFA World Cup is spread across 12 stadiums in 11 host cities.


Rafael Nadal saved his best until last as he demolished Dominic Thiem to seal his 11th French Open title. Another forehand victor from Nadal found a corner, and Thiem yelled toward his coach.

Well, we never thought we'd see the day, but that rather exciting prospect came true during the Laver Cup in Prague previous year. But that's the best-of-three sets and in different, faster conditions.

Thirteen years and 17 Grand Slam titles along, with Nadal aged 32 years and one week, still, nobody has ever said anything any truer. "I think he is really good".

Understandably, Thiem looked edgy at the start and he managed to win only one of the first eight points as Nadal, cheered loudly when he walked on court, bristled with intent. He lost the first set, then turned things around after a rain delay. He had the trainers visit his chair repeatedly, which may have supplied some viewers with mild intrigue.

Became the first man to win five successive French Open titles in 2014. According to the Express, the 36-year-old has already signed a deal with the Japanese company.

Taliban in 3-day truce
An explosion in southern Kandahar province previous year , blamed by security forces on the Taliban, killed five UAE diplomats. The holiday, and the cease-fire, is expected to begin this week.


At 4-4 Nadal hit a second serve that bounced before it reached the net, but he shrugged that off to hold. Overall, the tally was a mere 58 percent. Thiem did force Nadal to save a breakpoint, but a less aggressive approach due to the mounting enforced errors meant there was little pressure on Nadal. He knew he had to play his best game. "It was just bad misses", said Thiem.
