Djokovic jumped on the board toward the beginning of the second set subsequent to figuring out how to spare three break focuses however Nadal kept up his iron grasp by breaking the Serbian’s next two help games to take a 2-0 lead in the match.

In a great third set, Djokovic broke Nadal’s serve unexpectedly for 3-3 however dropped serve on a twofold issue in the eleventh game before the left-hander proceeded to sack his 100th triumph at Roland Garros with an ace. “Today you showed why you are the king of clay.
