Nadal won Roland Garros for the 12th time 2

The second seed beat Thiem after 4 sets, with scores of 6-3, 5-7, 6-1, 6-1 in the final on the evening of June 9.

Compared to the previous three matches at Roland Garros, in 2014, 2017 and 2018, Dominic Thiem did better.

The title just won in France helped Nadal have the 18th Grand Slam of his career, and is only two less than Roger Federer.

Nadal is still too strong on clay and continues to dominate Roland Garros.

The key to Nadal’s victory is knowing how to punish his opponent’s mistakes.

After equalizing the 1-1 draw with a 7-5 victory in the second set, Thiem threw everything away.

Before the final, many opinions expressed concern about Thiem’s physical strength, as he needed two days, with more than four hours of competition, to overcome Novak Djokovic in the semi-finals.
