World number one Rafael Nadal equalled Bjorn Borg's record of six Roland Garros titles as he oversaw Roger Federer's challenge to claim the French Open at Court Philippe Chatrier on Sunday. 

In an encounter lasting three hours and 39 minutes, Nadal came out on top with a 7-5 7-6(7-3) 5-7 6-1 win over Federer.

Though Federer looked impressive early on after breaking Nadal early, he failed to claim a set point as his drop shot sneaked wide and he'll be left wondering what would have been had he converted it. It allowed Nadal to get back and claim the first set, before a gruelling second was decided in a tie-breaker.

Fed battled back in the third, but Nadal stepped on the pedal in the fourth to breeze through to his sixth French Open title and reconfirm yet again that he is the undisputed King of Clay. 

His record at Roland Garros reads 45-1 - the only loss coming against Robin Soderling two years back when the Spaniard's creaking knees deterred him sufficiently for a first and only loss.

Federer, undoubtedly another legend, will wonder what he has to do to win the Roland Garros when the 25-year-old from Spain continuously stands in his way.
