The Roland Garros 2011 Men’s Singles Final match between Rafael Nadal vs Roger Federer was a global sensation. The world witnessed top-ranked Rafael Nadal winning his sixth French Open title after beating Roger Federer 7-5, 7-6, 5-4, 6-1. This is Nadal’s 10th career Grand Slam title and his sixth French Open title haul has equal Bjorn Borg’s haul.
Federer was aiming for a record 17th Grand Slam title. The Swiss star ended Novak Djokovic’s unbeated streak in the semifinals.
Federer has yet to win against Nadal in Paris and goes 0-5 following the loss on Sunday.
“What I said one week ago is I am going to put in everything to try to change the situation, to try to play better, and that’s what I did,’ said Nadal.
“I try my best in every moment with the right attitude all the time, so finally I was able to play my best when I needed my best,” he added.
“Today was a very good match. Overall obviously I’m very happy about the tournament. Obviously you should be disappointed after losing in a Grand Slam final. Obviously I feel that a little bit today. He’s a great champion on clay especially, and I am happy with my tournament,” Federer said.
