Rafael Nadal unsure if he will defend French Open title in 2019

  • Rafael Nadal pulled out of the Queen’s Club tournament due to exhaustion following the French Open triumph

Heaven eleven: This combination of pictures shows Rafael Nadal posing with the French Open trophy at every one of his 11 victories since 2005.

This year, in Madrid where the courts are faster and the flies through the air because of the altitude, Thiem launched a heavy-handed attack against Nadal and emerged a 7-5, 6-3 victor.

The 32-year-old continued his extraordinary domination at Roland Garros with a ruthless 6-4, 6-3, 6-2 victory.

"For me [it] was scary, because I felt that I was not able to move the hand, the finger", Nadal said. I had a long and mentally tough clay court season, of course, because I played nearly all the matches possible after coming from an injury.

But only so much of a thrill. I have passion for what I am doing. It was a final.

"I would love to be playing in as many places as possible, but you understand I need to check how I feel in the next couple of days". "I gave everything I had, and I'm the loser of today".

Thiem's best results also have come on clay.

If there were any reason for a bit of intrigue entering Sunday's match, it was this: Thiem beat Nadal in two sets on red clay at Rome in May 2017 and again at Madrid last month.

The Spaniard will remain world number one rather than Federer following his latest triumph in Paris, where he became only the second player to triumph more than 10 times at the same major - Margaret Court being the other. No, you can't be frustrated always if somebody has more money than you, if somebody have a bigger house than you, if somebody have more Grand Slams than you.

He has come close in Paris before, losing in the semifinals a year ago (to Nadal) and in 2016 (to Novak Djokovic).

The 24-year-old Austrian has been the closest to a clay-court "rival" for Nadal this season, but even he was far out of Nadal's league. Serving at less than 50%, Nadal got plenty of looks at second serves.

Midway through the opening set, Nadal's aqua T-shirt was so soaked with sweat it stuck to him, so he changed into a fresh one at a changeover, drawing catcalls from spectators. Nadal's level immediately cooled off a little, though, and Thiem worked his way back into the set as he broke back in the following service game. The Austrian promised he had a game plan against Nadal for the final.

Those conditions might have contributed to the cramping that affected Nadal about two hours into the final, at 2-1 in the third set.

"I think everybody can stop talking about it now". "It was just awful misses". For the past two years, Thiem has been threatening to encroach on Nadal's territory. Thiem making unforced errors.

Maybe nerves were a factor in Thiem's performance.

- Nadal's uncle Miguel Angel Nadal was a former soccer player who represented Barcelona, RCD Mallorca and the Spain national team.

"I mean, it's a big goal for me to play, soon, another Slam final, " Thiem said.
