Rumble / Sports NewsTennis legend Rafael Nadal defeated Dominic Thiem 6-3 5-7 6-1 6-1 at the French Open on Sunday, to become the first player to win the same grand slam 12 times. Nadal also downed the Austrian a year ago. But according to CNN, Sunday's clash was closer -- or at least the first two sets. For the first time, Nadal pulled to within two grand slams of Roger Federer, the man he eased past in their headline semifinal Friday.
