Rafael Nadal advances to French Open final


Rafael Nadal added to his legend on Friday morning when he reached his 7th French Open final by easily defeating David Ferrer 6-2, 6-2, 6-1. If that doesn’t show you just how great Rafa is, he has also improved his overall record to 51-1 on the clay of Roland Garros.

If Nadal takes the title, he will break his tie with Bjorn Borg. They currently share the record of six French Open trophies.

Still no hint of arrogance from Nadal in offcourt attitude.How many sports stars would manage this while dominating to this degree? #RG12

Rafa Nadal at the French could qualify for the "Not sure anybody does anything as well as he does this one thing" convo.

Nadal just crushed Ferrer. Whoever win the semifinal between Federer and Djokovic will find a real tough match against the king of clay.

Last time Nadal lost a match on red clay after winning 1st set was 2007 Hamburg final vs Federer. Long time ago
