Nadal rules over Federer in Paris

Post by Admin on Mon Jun 09, 2008 12:00 pm

Rafael Nadal produced a flawless exhibition of claycourt tennis to demolish world number one Roger Federer 6-1, 6-3, 6-0 on Sunday and win his fourth straight French Open title.

The Spaniard was at his relentless best as he tore Federer apart in one hour 48 minutes to deny the Swiss a career grand slam and equal Bjorn Borg's feat of four consecutive titles at Roland Garros.

"I played a perfect match," said Nadal, who was presented with the trophy by Borg.

"I'm sorry for that final but you played well," he told Federer. "I want to thank Roger for his attitude on the court."

Federer, beaten in the final by Nadal in the two previous years, had promised to attack but made too many errors early on as Nadal ripped through the first set.
