Rafael Nadal proved he is the undisputed King of Clay. The Spaniard beat Dominic Thiem 6-4, 6-3, 6-2 to clinch his eleventh French Open title on Sunday.

“It’s a dream to win 11 times,” said Nadal, who has now taken his Grand Slam tally to 17.

“It was important to play the way I did. It was a tough moment when I got cramp. He (Thiem) is a player who pushes you to the limit,” he added.

And as Nadal once again left his mark in Paris, we take a look at some of the best pictures from his outing on Sunday, as he lifted his favourite trophy.
