There was a lot of celebrating for Rafael Nadal this past weekend.

Spain’s Rafael Nadal retained the top ranking in Monday’s ATP list, the day after claiming a sixth French Open crown to equal the Roland Garros record of Bjorn Borg.

Nadal beat Roger Federer (7-5 7-6 (7-3) 5-7 6-1) for the title after the Swiss had handed Djokovic a first 2011 defeat in the semifinals. Djokovic would have moved to the top had he made the final, or if Federer had won the decider.

And Nadal and Federer put on a worthy show; more than three hours full of lengthy exchanges, brilliant defence, sublime shot-making and some dizzying shifts of momentum.

On Friday (June 3), Rafael celebrated his birthday at Roland Garros in Paris, France.
