Rafael Nadal has once again proved his supremacy on clay and won his 12th title at Roland Garros 2019. The Spaniard beat his last year's opponent Austrian Dominic Thiem for the second year in a row to claim a record 12th French Open title. Nadal beat Thiem 6-3, 5-7, 1-6,6-1 in the final of French Open 2019.
This was Rafael Nadal's 18th Grand Slam title overall. Rafael Nadal, known as the King of Clay, had 11 French Open titles before this. Spain's 'Raging Bull' holds the record for the most number of Grand Slams won by a player on clay or any one surface and has now taken his tally to an unprecedented 12th Roland Garros trophy. Nadal is now only two slams behind Roger Federer, who has 20 Grand Slams.
On the other hand, Dominic Thiem once again failed to beat Nadal at the Roland Garros. This is Thiem's second straight loss to Nadal in the French Open final, after he lost to Nadal in last year's final too. Nadal, with this win, has become the first player to hold or win the same Grand Slam 12 times.
