Nadal Wins 9 French Opens

Comment: Nadal has now eclipsed Borg's record of four straight wins at Roland Garros.  He has won nine French Opens and with today's win five in a row.

His grand slam total stands at 14 right alongside Sampras and just three off from Federer's.  And he is just 28 years old and it is very likely that is form will continue to eclipse Federer.

This is the grand age of men's tennis no doubt and in no small measure because of the likes of Nadal, Federer and Djokovic.

When it comes to who is the greatest of all time (goat) in the men's game I agree with Agassi who recently said that it is Nadal.

What makes him the greatest is that he has played in this time of greats and he has consistently beaten Federer and Djokovic alongside other very talented players and he has done so across surfaces.

An amazing athlete no doubt and he ain't done yet.  And hey he is a Gemini too ;-)
