Last Sunday, Rafael Nadal defeated Novak Djokovic to claim his fifth consecutive French Open championship and ninth overall. Of the 67 matches he’s played at the French Open, Nadal has won 66 of them and he’s on a current run of 35 straight match wins.
Basically, Rafael Nadal owns the clay courts of Roland Garros, the event’s venue.
In honor of his latest triumph, Nike had a statue made of the world’s top ranked men’s singles tennis player from the surface he’s dominated during his career, clay like that found at the French Open.
Leave it to Nike to go the extra mile.
