Paris: The Spanish matador won the French Open for record seventh time and surpassed legend Bjorn Borg who has six titles to his name. But there are some interesting facts of what would have happened in case if Rafa lost the epic battle.
In case if Nadal ended up losing the French Cup Final, he would have become the World No. 3. Whereas, in spite of losing the epic clash, Djokovic remains to be the World No. 1.
Rafa had lost three consecutive grand slam finals against Nole and in case if he lost the French Open, he would have created history by becoming the first player ever to have lost four consecutive grand slam finals against the same opponent.
But the good news for all the Rafa fans is that he entered the history books for the right reasons.
