French open 2018: Rafael Nadal 'The King of Clay'

In the French Open men's final today; Rafael Nadal beat Dominic Thiem 6-4, 6-3, 6-2 on Sunday to claim his 11th title at Roland Garros.

There were early signs for Austrian seventh seed Thiem, who won just one of the first nine points as Nadal quickly broke for 2-0.
But Thiem, held his own to Nadal's first serve close to the baseline than usual, forced two break points in the next game and nailed the second with a flashing forehand into the right corner.
Thiem withstood a barrage of break points to hold in a marathon sixth game, which he thought he had won at 40-30 when he left a wide ball, only for the umpire to overrule the line judge.
