Nadal Wins 8th French Open Championship, Serena Takes 16th Grand Slam Title

June 10, 2013

Rafael Nadal set records at the French Open on Sunday, defeating fellow Spaniard David Ferrer 6-3, 6-2, 6-3 in the men’s singles final to become the first man with eight championships at the same Grand Slam event, and snapping the high mark for most wins at Roland Garros, where he is now 59-1.

It was Nadal’s 12th Grand Slam title overall, tying him with Roy Emerson for third-best all-time, behind Roger Federer (17) and Pete Sampras (14).  Nadal has won 22 straight matches, and is 43-2 with seven championships since his return to tennis from knee problems seven months ago.

Serena Williams claimed her 16th Grand Slam championship on Saturday, taking her second French Open women’s singles title by winning 6-4, 6-4 over defending champion Maria Sharapova.

Williams has won her last 31 matches, and now stands sixth in all-time Grand Slam wins behind Margaret Court (24), Steffi Graf (22), Helen Wills Moody (19), and Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert (18 apiece).
