Rafael Nadal won his record-setting seventh French Open title Monday, defeating world No. 1 Novak Djokovic 6-4, 6-3, 2-6, 7-5 in their rain-delayed final.

Nadal’s win breaks a tie with Bjorn Borg for most titles won in the clay court major.

“For me the comparison to the great Borg is a great honor,” Nadal told NBC’s John McEnroe after the match.

Djokovic led 2-1 in the fourth set when play resumed after an 18-hour rain delay pushed back the conclusion of the final until 1 p.m. on Monday

The match ended when Djokovic doubled faulted on match point. That finished the top-ranked player in the world’s quest to become first man in 43 years to hold all four Grand Slam titles at the same time.
