11 June, 2018, 17:17 | Author: Tommie Newton
Nadal won a record-extending 11th title at Roland Garros and 17th major overall Sunday when he defeated his spirited challenger, Dominic Thiem, 6-4 6-3 6-2 in Paris.
Two breaks later Nadal was in a familiar position, serving for the title, and when another Thiem forehand dropped long, his arms were raised in celebration, yet again. He ripped off the tape around his wrist and the trainer rushed on to manipulate the hand, the fingers of which were pointing in various directions like a broken umbrella.
Rafael Nadal looks borderline unbeatable at the moment. But as Nadal's uncle, Toni Nadal, said shortly afterwards, "this is not normal".
"Probably because I had the bandage here [around his wrist], creates pressure that doesn't allow the right circulation". "Let me enjoy this title", he said, mildly. "I know I've had an incredible career so I want to keep fighting for these things".
Ten years ago, Nadal was already the King of Clay. That is actually a tad below the $775,000 pricetag on his previous RM27-02, which Nadal first wore at the 2015 French Open.
There was late anxiety for Nadal as the predicted thunderstorms loomed and he needed his left forearm massaged after beginning to suffer from cramp. Dominic Thiem showed over the course of this tournament that he is more than ready to take the reins.
According to Perrotta, Nadal has lost two Richard Mille watches that were stolen (one was later recovered) and almost lost a third when a fellow player found one in a locker room.

There were two tricks up Nadal's sleeve in Paris this year.
"I would love to be playing in as many places as possible, but you understand I need to check how I feel in the next couple of days", Nadal said. 'I can't be always thinking of more.
Later, as the Spanish anthem played, he sobbed long and hard.
The 24-year-old Austrian has been the closest to a clay-court "rival" for Nadal this season, but even he was far out of Nadal's league. He is, however, the second player overall to win a major 11 times after Australia's Margaret Court, who won four of her 11 Australian Open titles after the start of the Open Era in 1968.
If Thiem is, as he is widely regarded, the second best clay-court player in the world then he probably has a few more of these pummellings to look forward to at least until Nadal, 32, finally calls it a day.
He beat the Swiss master, Roger Federer, when he was just 17 years old. He turned philosopher when the question was raised. His first Grand Slam doesn't come around every week so he had better make the most of it. You can't live with that feeling. "You have to do it your way". The losses came against Thiem at Rome in May 2017 and at Madrid last month.
He is now entered to play the Queen's Club tournament next week.

The contest at times resembled a pantomine with Fury gurning and throwing his arms into the air through much of the opening round. But it (the retirement) happened and it wasn't my fault that they pulled him out.
