Rafael Nadal has clinched his 12th French Open title at Roland Garros on Sunday.

Okay.ng understands that the Spanish tennis player edged Austria’s Dominic Thiem in four sets of 6-3 5-7 6-1 6-2.

With this win, Nadal becomes the first player, man or woman, to win the same Slam 12 times after seeing off a brave challenge from a weary Thiem in a repeat of the 2018 final.

The 33-year-old World number two tennis player, who has now won 18 Grand Slam titles, dispatched Novak Djokovic-conqueror, Thiem, in a repeat of last year’s final, making it a 4-0 record over Thiem at Roland Garros.
