French Open 2018 Final Live Score: Rafael Nadal vs Dominic Thiem in the final.

French Open 2018 Men’s Final Results Live Score Streaming, Rafael Nadal vs Dominic Thiem: Almost fittingly Rafael Nadal’s quest to win an 11th French Open title will have to come by beating the only man who has gotten the better of him on clay in the last two years. Austria’s Dominic Thiem beat Nadal in Rome last year and again in Madrid this year – to also end his streak of consecutive sets won on the surface. But for Thiem, it will be a challenge that he’s not faced before in a final – facing Nadal in a five setter. Stay tuned for live scores and updates from Rafael Nadal vs Dominic Thiem in the French Open final.

Nadal has a 6-3 advantage in their nine matches. Interestingly, all have been played on clay. In Paris, they’ve played twice – in 2014 in the second round – when Rafa won 6-2, 6-2, 6-3 and later last year in the semifinals. Then the Spaniard won 6-3, 6-4, 6-0. 

Thiem has won thrice: in Buenos Aires (2016), Rome (2017) and most recently in Madrid. While Rome and Madrid were straight sets wins for the Austrian, in Argentina he had won 6-4, 4-6, 7-6.

Queen of Paris: Simona Halep!

Simona Halep – Day after!

In women’s doubles: Barbora Krejcikova and Katerina Siniakova of the Czech Republic have won the French Open for their first Grand Slam title in women’s doubles. The No. 6-seeded pairing from the Czech Republic beat Eri Hozumi and Makoto Ninomiya of Japan 6-3, 6-3 on Sunday. Krejcikova and Siniakova, who are both 22, were playing in their fifth major tournament together. Siniakova was the doubles runner-up at last year’s U.S. Open with a different partner. The unseeded Hozumi and Ninomiya were the first all-Japanese duo to reach a Grand Slam final in women’s doubles.

Hello and Good Evening! Thank you for joining us in our coverage of the French Open final where there is a regular (OH SO REGULAR) face and a new face. On one side of the net will be Rafael Nadal who has won a record 10 titles in Paris while on the other side will be Dominic Thiem who has never stayed this far at a major. Nadal stands 10-0 in finals here or 85-2 (!) in all matches and the task of making that 10-1 or 85-3 is a herculean one – as many have tried and failed.

French Open Final Live: A popular saying in tennis circles goes: ‘death, taxes and Nadal in the final of a French Open final are inevitable’. And it is that time of the year when that saying gets repeated once again. But in his way to an 11th title on the Parisian clay stands a worthy opponent who has shown his mettle against the Spaniard. Dominic Thiem, in his first grand slam final, has a massive task ahead of him – beat Nadal in a five setter at French Open. Or just beat Nadal at French Open where the Spaniard has lost only twice. The three wins that the Austrian has over Nadal, all have come in best-of-three setters setters and the best-of-five rule at Roland Garros plays into the hands of Rafa who liked to grind it out for the win.
