Roger Federer Rubbishes Talks Of Split With Long-Term Partner

Rafael Nadal was at his awe-inspiring best as he crushed Austrian Dominic Thiem to snatch a record-extending 11th French Open title with a 6-4 6-3 6-2 victory yesterday.

According to the Independent, Federer will wear Uniqlo's kit as he returns to defend his men's singles title at Wimbledon next month, looking to win the grass-court Grand Slam for a ninth time.

The clay courts of Roland Garros host the second Grand Slam of the season.

Thiem did at least remind Nadal of his age, saying; "I can still remember being 11 when (Nadal) won here for the first time and I watched on the TV".

It was early in his career when Nadal began his habit of biting the championship trophies he wins.

But Nadal roared into the 2017 Australian Open final, losing to Federer, then captured his record 10th French Open crown in June past year, setting the stage for another title run in the Flushing Meadows fortnight at the US Open in September.

At 2-1 in the fourth set, Nadal stopped serving during a game because he couldn't straighten his left middle finger.

That was swatted away with Nadal's double-handed backhand, though, and the second set duly went the way of the favourite. I was very scared but that's sport, it was very humid.

Federer will be hoping to do better in Stuttgart than he did previous year, when he lost his opening match of the tournament to Tommy Haas. His form is compared to years past and the passage of time is made tangible on his birthday, which falls during the tournament every year.

World number one Rafael Nadal claimed his eleventh title at Roland Garros, defeating Dominic Thiem in straight sets on Sunday. It's been a while, I haven't played matches, so I'm happy.

"Physically, I enjoyed (it) more watching him on the couch", Thiem said with a smile. "I have ambition and passion for what I am doing".

"But we go step by step, I have a lot of good players around me in the draw and I think it's a tricky one, but I am very excited to be here".

"I have never been insane about this kind of stuff, you can't always be frustrated if somebody has more money than you, a bigger house than you, if somebody has more Grand Slams than you, ' he said". You can't live with that feeling, no?

Thiem - competing in his first grand slam final after a pair of semifinal showings in Paris - needed to win the first set to have any realistic opportunity of ending Nadal's reign. Why? He didn't look meek or cowed, just frustrated when he missed chances to make minor headway.
