Roland Garros men's final -- key points

Paris (AFP) –


Key points in the 2019 Roland Garros men's final between Rafael Nadal and Dominic Thiem on Sunday:

Set 1

+ Incredible point sees both players scampering around the net, before Thiem bludgeons a forehand winner to bring up the first break point of the match, which he takes to lead 3-2.

+ Nadal hits back immediately, unfurling a rasping forehand winner on his second break point.

+ The Spaniard makes it three straight games as he breaks again, before taking the first set point as Thiem fires long.

Who's saying what: "This is a crazy high level of physicality..... Gonna be interesting to see how long Nadal and Thiem keep this level as this match goes on."

-- American world number 42 Taylor Fritz on Twitter.

Key statistics: Nadal nine winners; Thiem seven
