Rafael Nadal equal Borg's record

Rafael Nadal wins again

Rafael Nadal equal Björn Borg's record of four consecutive victory for the French Open title by overloading the world number one Roger Federer in straight sets in the final at Roland Garros on Sunday.

The resounding 6-1 6-3 6-0 victory is also the first time since Borg success in 1980 that a player has won the event without a single drop rate in the entire tournament.

The Spaniard, two seeds, went into the fight as a favorite and proved far too huge for Federer and his relentless beat, superior touches of class and left his tireless running Erzrivalen with little chance, while all three sets unilaterally.

In fact, Federer was a shadow of his best and his alarming number of unforced errors and missed opportunities, life much easier for the 22-year-old Spaniard, there is no doubt, the "King of Clay".
