Rafael Nadal Wins French Open 2008 Title

A rematch of the last three French Open final was experienced today at the Roland Garros as no. 2 seeded Rafael Nadal ended up winning French Open 2008 title defeating no. 1 Roger Federer in straight sets. With this victory Nadal touches Bjorn Borg’s record four consecutive French Open titles.

Throughout French Open 2008, Rafael Nadal showed his dominance and the Spaniard is now marching on towards becoming one of greatest players in the history of French Open. On the other hand, for Roger Federer, it was another French Open disaster and the Swiss star is still left without any French Open title to his credit, meaning he has to wait another year for another French Open in his pursuit to achieve a career grand slam. You know that Roger Federer won all thee other grand slam titles in his way to win 13 grand slam singles titles, just one behind Pete Sampras’s 14 grand slam singles titles.

So, it would have been his first defeat if Federer could have clinched the title. However, nothing happened like that, rather today’s victory was the easiest among Nadal’s four French Open encounters with Roger Federer until now. The score line 6-1, 6-3, 6-0 would reveal that how uncompetitive the final match of French Open 2008 was.

Rafael Nadal dominated throughout the match and except a little challenge in the second set; Nadal did not face anything threatening from Swiss no. 1 Federer. The Spanish star clinched the first set in 54 minutes dropping only one game. In the first set, Nadal broke Federer thrice in the first, fifth and seventh games, giving no chance to Federer to come back. In the second set, Federer seemed to bounce back when he leveled the score 2-2, coming behind 2-0. However, Nadal finished off the set winning 6-3. The last set was easier for Rafael Nadal as he did not lose any game breaking Roger Federer thrice.
