Toni Nadal in tears for Rafael's 20th Slam

The 2020 edition of the Roland Garros final between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic was not just any final, and it could not have been otherwise. The two were playing not only for the victory of a Grand Slam but for the umpteenth consecration among the best tennis players in history.

All so close in the pursuit of Roger Federer's Grand Slam record. Nadal with one victory would not only have made thirteen in Paris, no one has ever won a tournament like him so many times, but he would have equaled Roger Federer in the special ranking of the most successful players at the level of Grand Slam tournaments in history.

So it was. Nadal has won and has achieved a feat that, sporting speaking, seems unattainable. He surpasses Djokovic in just over two hours and thirty minutes without ever allowing him to impose his game and confirms himself as King of Clay (King of clay).

At the end of the match, his uncle Toni Nadal, who has remained in Manacor to follow the match from the Academy, bursts into a liberating cry that he cannot hold back in front of the microphone of the journalist who tries to interview him shortly after the match ended.
