|Nadal with his 6th French Open Trophy|
The win ties Nadal with Bjorn Borg for the most ever wins at the French Open and gives him 10 overall, just six behind Federer. Having just turned 25 years old, Nadal could make a run at Federer's record 16. Of course, that total of 16 could go higher in the coming years. Federer showed in Paris that he's not done yet, even as he approaches his 30th birthday.
Nadal was beatable on Sunday, which isn't something you could have said about a vast majority of his 46 previous matches on the red clay of Paris. His defense was as brilliant as ever but his groundstrokes were inconsistent and he played tentatively at times, hitting the ball short and allowing Federer to work the angles for winners.
