Facts and stats from Nadal's three-peat
Rafael Nadal added a third straight French Open title to his trophy case and notched up a few more notable stats along the way.
He didn't become the first player since Bjorn Borg in 1980 to win the French Open without dropping a set, but Rafael Nadal did just about everything else on Sunday.
The 21-year-old Spaniard won his third straight French Open crown, and for the second consecutive year, he beat top-seeded Roger Federer in four sets.
What else did Rafa accomplish in the final? Here's a look at the most notable statistics from his three-peat performance at Roland Garros.
