Rafael Nadal – The Master of Clay Court

Rafa did it again! He won the French Open 2008 Men’s Singles title for the fourth consecutive year today at Roland Garros. The other player who has done this feat is Bjorn Borg and Bjorn has a total of 6 French Open titles. Nadal’s 2008 French Open campaign was outstanding, as he had won all the matches including the finals in straight sets. He outclassed the World No 1, Roger Federer, in the finals by winning in straight sets, 6-1, 6-3, 6-0. Nadal allowed Federer to win only 4 games in the entire match and this speaks about the supremacy of the Spaniard on the clay court. Earlier, Federer was very confident of winning the title and said that he would defeat Nadal in the final encounter but all his hopes and dreams were completely washed away by Nadal.
