French Open 2012: Rafael Nadal Defeats Novak Djokovic To Win French Open

Rafael Nadal proved once again that he is virtually unstoppable at Roland Garros after defeating top ranked Novak Djokovic 6-4, 6-3, 2-6, 7-5 at the final of the 2012 French Open.

Nadal started the day down 1-2 following yesterday's suspension of play, but immediately took the next two games to move the set to 3-2. Both players then were able to hold serve until the final game in the match, where Djokovic committed a couple of errors, includin launching his second serve long to double fault and give Nadal the title on Rafael's first match point.

With his 7th victory at Roland Garros, Nadal passed Bjorn Borg for the most French Open victories in the Open era.
