French Open: Rafael Nadal reflects on 'emotional' victory

Rafael Nadal says his four-set triumph over Novak Djokovic in the French Open final was an "emotional" victory as he claimed his ninth French Open title and a record fifth in succession.

The Spainard beat Djokovic 3-6 7-5 6-2 6-4 to win at Roland Garros and help make up for losing the Australian Open final when he was hampered by back problems.

Djokovic congratulated his rival despite being disappointed by the loss, and says he says was "a better player in the crucial moments".
