Roland Garros 2014: Rafael Nadal makes worldwide headlines
Rafael Nadal won his first Grand Slam of the year and the ninth French Open of his career on Sunday as he defeated Novak Djokovic. Newspapers world wide announced the win with articles and photos from the tournament. Here are some of them.
From Vietnam, Rafael wins, I’m happy and congratulate him for me …. Rafael is a great champion and very lovely. Hopefully he achieved the highest success in Wimbledon and U.S. Open this year.
I was fortunate to have been in Roland Garros on Sunday to witness the achievement of our great champion. I met many fellow supporters from all over the world and we connected with great joy and a common bond. What a performance and he demonstrates once again his ability to figure things out. He showed,not just his ability but his dignity and innate grace in his behaviour. The emotion was palpable and it was lovely to see the great Borg greet him with genuine affection; two true legends, two gentlemen,
What a great win. Proud of you.
Sou uma fã incondicional desse exemplo do esporte que é Rafael Nadal. Dentro e fora das quadras. Rei do saibro e, afina, nos demais pisos. Majestade sem arrogância. Atleta admirável, dedicado, persistente, genial, passional, técnico, combina razão e emoção na medida exata. É um fenômeno! Touro e toureiro numa arena feliz. Congratulaciones, Rafa!!! Que pueda seguir siendo esta persona admirable por muchos años; encantadora y amable. Mi cariño desde Río de Janeiro, Brasil. Marcia Lahtermaher

Rafael Nadal should be named “The Grand-Master of Clay tennis” in the history!

Name the center court Rafa
Rafa EL REY !!!! Felicidades te mereces esto y mas, por todo el esfuerzo y dedicacion, te admiramos y tqm desde Mexico. Ojala y vengas otra vez a visitarnos, eres especial.
I agree, the central court should be named after him. He owns it anyway.
Rafa se lo merece todo. Los españoles deben estar muy orgullosos, pero yo soy uruguaya y estoy tan orgullosa como ellos. Vi el partido con la remera de Rafa puesta. Siempre pensé que iba a ganar a pesar de que se le fue el primer set porque a Djokovic no lo veia bien. No hay palabras para describir lo que ha logrado, GRANDE, UNICO, ESPECTACULAR, no se, parecen ser palabras que no alcanzan. Soy una fan leal, de las que siempre estuvieron con el y no solo cuando gana y me asombra su poder de recuperación. Hay muchos que no se reponen de un periodo de poca confianza. Nunca vi nada como el. FELICITACIONES AL QUERIDO RAFA Y TODO SU EQUIPO, Y UN ESPECIAL CARINO A SU NOVIA.
Without any doubt, Nadal is the GOAT; no one, living or dead, can surpass or match this great achievement! John Mcenroe and Agassi and a lot of the other legends already regard him as the GOAT, so what elase? But for the unfortunate accident of Robin Solderling in 2009, even the maestro Federer would most likely not have won a French open trophy to date, which would mean that, Roger Federer too would not have completed a career grand slam! That’s the truth and even Roger knows it. If not for Solderling, Roger Federer would not have completed the career grand slam!
Rafa is a living legend and Roland Garros should immediately be renamed after him. THIS IS THE TIME TO IMMORTALISE RAFA NADAL! We don’t need to wait till next year when he makes it a 10.
