Rafael Nadal routs Novak Djokovic in French Open final, ties Roger Federer’s Slam record

Rafael Nadal routed Novak Djokovic and drew even with Roger Federer in career Grand Slams, winning his record-extending 13th French Open title.

Nadal handed Djokovic his first full-match defeat in 11 months, a 6-0, 6-2, 7-5 thrashing for a 20th major title.

“It’s not the moment, honestly not for me, I don’t think today about the 20th of equal Roger on this great number,” Nadal said. “For me, today is just a Roland Garros victory. Roland Garros means everything to me. I spent here the most important moments, or most of the most important moments in my tennis career, no doubt.
