PTI
In Tennis, Rafael Nadal beat Novak Djokovic 6-0, 6-2, 7-5 to win his 13th French Open and equal Roger Federer's all-time record of 20 Grand Slam titles last night. For world number one Djokovic, the defeat ended his hopes of an 18th Slam and of becoming the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to win all four majors twice.

World number two Nadal claimed his 100th match win at Roland Garros against just two defeats since his 2005 debut. The spaniard, the oldest champion in Paris since Andres Gimeno in 1972, claimed the title without dropping a set.

In Women's doubles, Timea Babos and Kristina Mladenovic retained their French Open title. The Hungarian-French pairing, seeded second, beat the 14th-seeded team of Alexa Guarachi, from Chile, and American Desirae Krawczyk 6-4, 7-5. With this, Babos and Mladenovic, who were withdrawn from the US Open due to COVID-19 protocols, have now won four Grand Slam doubles title together.

In Women's Singles on Saturday, Polish teenager Iga Swiatek completed a stunning rise by becoming the lowest-ranked woman to win the French Open after beating American Sofia Kenin. She beat Kenin in the final 6-4, 6-1. The 19-year-old Swiatek has moved to 17th position from 54 in the world ranking.
