For the 12th time in his career, Rafael Nadal celebrated a title at Roland Garros. The Spaniard was cheered mightily afterward by the ball kids crew, who were also on hand for the photo ceremony with him and his trophy.

For the second year in a row, Nadal beat Dominic Thiem in the final. This time around, Thiem earned a set, but ultimately was wiped out, 6-3, 5-7, 6-1, 6-1.
