Nadal's Coach Reveals Secret to Beating Thiem

Roland Garros final day recap Rafael Nadal's dynasty

"I have ambition and passion for what I am doing".

Austria's Dominic Thiem wipes his face in the men's final match of the French Open tennis tournament against Spain's Rafael Nadal at the Roland Garros stadium in Paris, France, Sunday, June 10, 2018.

Nadal also became the second tennis player ever to win 11 titles at the same major, joining Margaret Court. Plus, consider this: Coco Gauff, a 14-year-old from Florida, beat Caty McNally, a 16-year-old from OH, in the junior final, the fourth time at the last five Grand Slam tournaments that two Americans played each other for the girls' title.

"I never thought I'd achieve this milestone, it's impossible to describe what I'm feeling". You have to do your way.

While we have an edge here, I appreciate that backing a heavy odds-on shot isn't most people's cup of tea, so the game handicap should be a viable proposition.

"But I didn't need to see it to know how strong he is and what fantastic things he's achieved". He also was aware that Federer might go four clear of Nadal in a month at Wimbledon.

- Victory on Sunday gave Nadal his 11th crown at Roland Garros from 11 finals.

Simona Halep of Romania broke through in Paris for her first Grand Slam title. Whether it was at the Masters tournaments in Monte Carlo, Madrid, or Rome-whether it was his home tournament in Barcelona-Nadal nearly never lost on the Spaniard.

The shift makes it significantly harder for the government to force through a "hard Brexit" outside the customs union and single market.

"So coming back and have the chance to win in Monte Carlo, Barcelona, Rome, and now especially here, yeah, it's very emotional for me". "Actually, when he won here the first four or five times, I was always watching it".

"I arrived so-so, with some doubts about this clay-court season".

"I mean, it's a big goal for me to play, soon, another Slam final, " Thiem said.

Before the clay-court season, the 36-year-old notably claimed he was interested in facing Nadal on the surface until he decided against participating following his loss in the Miami Open.

That was about as disheartening as it got for the world number one. "He's won seven times at Wimbledon so he'll definitely be up there as one of the favourites, but you never know; it depends a little bit on the draw". The three-time Major winners, both of whom have been hit by injury in recent times, were ranked in the top three a year earlier after Wawrinka reached the 2017 French Open final and Murray made it to the semi-finals.

Ten years ago, Nadal was already the King of Clay.

Rafael Nadal's 11th French Open title raised his Grand Slam trophy count to 17, three away from the men's record held by Roger Federer. He's a good friend, one of these players that the tour needs.

Nadal had been in the final of the hallowed red clay event 10 times before but he revealed a human side with a group of weak returns from misfired forehands, which Thiem pounced on with point-killing blows to remain even at 4-4. Now, six Slams later, Federer still keeps his lead at three.
