The Spanish tennis star Rafael Nadal just attained the newest glory in the history of the sports. After beating the Australian opponent Dominic Thiem, Nadal took away the French Open title for the 12th time in his 14 years of game.

“I can’t explain what I’ve achieved and how I feel. It’s a dream,” said the 33-year old.

Nadal’s third consecutive French Open came as he beat the Australian player in sets of four game at Roland Garros with a 6-3, 5-7, 6-1 and 6-1 score board.

“To play for the first time in 2005, I never thought in 2019 I’d still be here. It’s an incredible moment and very special for me,” he added.

Nadal, after staying out of 10 tournaments last year due to various injuries, has made a promising comeback. The world number two now stands short of merely two titles to beat the record of Rodger Federer.
