For Nadal, he was trying to become the first man ever to win 7 French Open titles and the second three-peat at Roland Garros.
For Djokovic, a win in the “City of Light” would have made him the first tennis player in 43 years to win all four Slams in consecutive fashion.
In the end, the “King of Clay” solidified his position as the greatest clay-court player in history with a resounding, 6-4, 6-3, 2-6, 7-5 victory and surpassing the great Bjorn Borg for most French Open titles.
“He’s definitely [the] best player in history on this surface and results are showing that he’s one of the best ever,” said a humbled Joker after having his 27th Grand Slam win streak snapped. With the loss, the French Open is still the only Slam Djokovic has yet to win, but many people believe he should have a distinct advantage over the Spaniard on grass.
