Rafael Nadal poses with French Open title in Paris with Eiffel Tower as backdrop - in pictures

Spaniard thrashed world No 1 Novak Djokovic 6-0, 6-2, 7-5 to lift a record-equalling 20th Grand Slam men's singles title on Sunday

Spaniard Rafael Nadal inflicted one of the most humiliating defeats on great rival Novak Djokovic in the French Open final on Sunday, thrashing the world No 1 6-0, 6-2, 7-5 to lift a record-equalling 20th Grand Slam men's singles title.

Tennis fans would have been salivating at the prospect of another epic clash in one of the sport's greatest rivalries but it proved to be one of the most one-sided Grand Slam finals in the Open era under the closed roof of Court Philippe Chatrier.

Nadal dominated to clinch a record-extending 13th Roland Garros title and moved level alongside longtime rival Roger Federer for the most number of men's majors.

A day after women's champion Iga Swiatek posed with the women's trophy, it was Nadal's turn to pose atop the Galeries Lafayette Rooftop in Paris with the Eiffel Tower as the backdrop.
