Was it even a surprise? Hardly doubt it. It may have seen so when Djokovic defeated Nadal several times until Federer stopped Djokovic in the semis perhaps giving some relief to Nadal in facing Djokovic in the finals.
With Nadal winning his 6th French Open in 7 finals, he has tied Bjorn Borg’s record of 6th French Open titles and his 10th overall. With Nadal’s winning record against Federer of 17-8, some critics are asking if Federer is worth of being the greatest of all time.
AMM thinks you cant take some things away from Federer as he really was untouchable during his prime. Nadal in a way is probably another era and Federer while still plays very well is probably not in his prime anymore at the age of 29 .. coming 30 in August.
