No one can stop this guy on clay! Rafael took home his record eighth French Open title on June 9, defeating David Ferrer in straight sets.

David Ferrer was thrilled to make it to his first ever major tournament final. Unfortunately, it was at the French Open against Rafael Nadal. Not only one of the best tennis players in history, Rafa is undoubtedly the best player in French Open history. And he proved why on June 9, simply overmatching David and winning yet another title at Roland Garros in France.

David showed impressive resolve at first, taking a 3-2 lead in the first set, but the good times for him ended there. Rafael went on to win eight straight games to take the first set, and a commanding lead in the second set. It was pretty much over after that.

Rafael went on to defeat David in straight sets — 6-3, 6-2, 6-3.

It was a historic day for Rafael, who was playing in his first major championship since taking seven months off from tennis in 2012 due to injury. The win was his record eight at the French Open, and his 12th major title overall.

David Ferrer: No Match For Rafael Nadal

Going into the match, David knew that the odds were against him.

“Oh, [expletive deleted]. Now I have to play Rafa in the French Open final,” David said after defeating Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the semifinals. “He’s an unbelievable player. He has all the shots. He has good receive, good forehand with topspin, [the] physical. In my mind he’s the best.”

Rafael certainly looked it on June 8. Way to go, Rafael!

He is the opposite of spoiled. He has only humility both on and off the court.
