Rafael Nadal defeated Roger Federer in four sets for his third consecutive French Open title yesterday, making him the first player since Bjorn Borg to win three straight titles Roland Garros. In fact, he's never lost there, going 21-0 since he first rose to greatness three years ago.
This just further cements the only story in men's tennis over the last three years: Federer is by far and away the best player in the world, but Nadal can beat him on clay. Nadal can beat pretty much anything on clay. Tigers. Sharks. Tiger sharks. Robot armies with tennis ball cannons. Cancer. If they could fit Darfur onto the court when he played, he could end the suffering there.
And all while wearing a sleeveless shirt, bandana, and capri pants. He's like an angelic gay pirate sent from Spain to protect us from Roger Federer's plans of world tennis domination. *Swoon*
