VARIOUS OF NADAL POSING WITH TROPHY STORY: French Open champion Rafael Nadal showed off to gathered media the French Open trophy he has gotten used to holding for more than a decade on Sunday (June 9).

The Spaniard won his twelfth French Open when he beat Austrian Dominic Thiem 6-3 5-7 6-1 6-1 .

The first set had been one for the ages, the second ran it close, but after three hours and one minute all that mattered was that Nadal was once again in familiar pose, flat on his back on the clay, clinching his 18th Grand Slam triumph in total.

The 33-year-old Nadal, who becomes the first player to win the same Grand Slam title 12 times, going past Margaret Court's 11 Australian Opens, now sits two major titles behind his great foe and men's Grand Slam title record holder, 37-year-old Roger Federer.
