PARIS  — Rafael Nadal won his fifth French Open title Sunday, beating Robin Soderling of Sweden 6-4, 6-2, 6-4.

For the second time in three years, Nadal won all 21 sets en route to the Roland Garros title. Only two other men in the Open era have won the title without losing a set, Bjorn Borg and Ilie Nastase.

With the victory, Nadal will also reclaim the No. 1 ranking Monday, replacing Federer.
