Nadal takes 9th French Open crown against Djokovic

World number one Rafa Nadal won a record extending ninth French Open title when he beat Serbian second seed Novak Djokovic 3-6 7-5 6-2 6-4 in today's final.

The Spaniard became the first man to win five successive titles at Roland Garros to take his overall grand slam tally to 14.

Djokovic, who was looking to become the eighth man to complete a career grand slam, made a great start but appeared to suffer from the heat and humidity after losing the second set.

Nadal, who has only lost one of his 67 matches on the Paris clay, fell on his knees when Djokovic double-faulted on the first match point.
