Rafael Nadal claimed an 11th French Open title on Sunday with a 6-4, 6-3, 6-2 demolition of Dominic Thiem despite a worrying injury scare in the closing stages of the final. The 32-year-old, world number one Nadal, now has 17 Grand Slam titles, just three behind great rival Roger Federer.

“This is unbelievable, it’s not even a dream. Nobody dreams of winning 11 titles,” Nadal, who turned to his team, raising his arms in celebration, after the 2 hour-42-minute French Open final, said. “I’m very happy to have won, especially after I suffered with cramps in the third set. That happens in a match where you are pushed, like I was today.”

Nadal took his Roland Garros win-loss record to a jaw-dropping 86-2 as he captured his 17th Grand Slam title. The Spaniard had won all 10 of his previous Roland Garros finals.
