TENNIS- Spaniard Rafael Nadal on Sunday defeated Austrian Dominic Thiem to lift his 12th French Open title, a milestone no player has ever reached at any Grand Slam before.

Known as the King of Clay, Nadal now trails Roger Federer’s all-time record of 20 by just two Slams.

Paying tribute to Nadal’s latest Grand Slam win, his kit-sponsor Nike has posted an advert which shows how far Nadal has come. It starts with 16 year old Nadal’s surprise win over Spaniard Carlos Moya at the 2003 Hamburg Masters and ends with the same match with the commentator questioning, “Is he going to play every point like that?”
