Nadal admits he thought he would have retired by now

Jun 10 2018 Paris France Rafael Nadal poses with the trophy after his men's singles final against Dominic Thiem on day 15

This year, Nadal dropped just one set.

The Spaniard was at his awe-inspiring best as he trampled Austrian Dominic Thiem to snatch a record-extending 11th French Open title with a 6-4, 6-3, 6-2 win on Sunday.

Nadal has won 17 Grand Slam singles titles, three short of Roger Federer, the tennis yin to his yang, who has won a record 20.

Sunday marked the first time Nadal had faced a player from a younger tennis generation in a Grand Slam final.

Having also beaten him in Rome last year, he is the only man to defeat Nadal on clay in the past two years, and the way he had played on the way to the final threatened to make it a classic match.

On June 2, Grande was seen wearing a huge rock on her ring finger at the Wango Tango concert in Los Angeles , reports The Mirror . Shortly after news of the rumoured engagement broke, Ariana shared a flurry of cryptic tweets relating to someone she loves.

He was already world no.1 ahead of Roger Federer coming into Roland Garros but has further embellished it with a 11 title at the French Open since first competing back in 2005.

For the second year running, Federer opted against playing at the French Open to spare his knees, but will be the favorite to win Wimbledon next month and re-establish a four Grand Slam gap over Nadal on the list of all-time collectors of major titles. "I don't think about the rankings at all today, no?" "Incredible", Federer said of Nadal's victory.

In the meantime, Nadal is scheduled to compete at Queen's Club next week, before bidding for a third Wimbledon title.

"If you tell me seven, eight years ago that I will be here, 32 years old, having this trophy with me again, I would tell you that is something nearly impossible, but here we are". That's when Nadal took charge, holding for a 5-4 lead, then breaking to take the set as Thiem made four unforced errors in a row.

With the two heavy favourites in the semi-finals winning, we have the final that most people during the latter stages would have wanted, Nadal v Thiem, and before I discuss the data in detail, I wanted to talk about their previous meetings a little more.

Vast Majority of Americans Support Trump’s Meeting with Kim Jong
His advice to Mr Trump was for him to go into the one-on-one meeting with his "heart on the table". The eccentric star also said he got death threats following his return from North Korea in 2014.

Thiem was 11 at the time. No, no, no, I can't - I can't be always thinking of more.

"Not that I did that a year ago, but on grass margins are very slim and it's not so simple, especially when you haven't played for three months". "You could nearly see the hand start cramping up as the fingers go stiff - it's a awful feeling", Croft said. Of course decide what's better for my body.

Dominic Thiem was vying for his first Grand Slam title on Sunday.

But from the moment Nadal broke serve in the 10th game to win the opening set, Thiem's belief ebbed away.

"You can't be frustrated always if somebody has more money than you, if somebody has a bigger house than you, if somebody has more grand slams than you. Bravo. To me it's been still great two weeks".
