PARIS - Rafa Nadal racked up a record-equaling sixth French Open title with a four-sets win over great rival Roger Federer on Sunday as his potent powers on clay again proved irresistible.

The 7-5 7-6 5-7 6-1 victory brought him level with Swede Bjorn Borg for Roland Garros men's singles triumphs while it made sure he would stay as world number one ahead of Serbia's Novak Djokovic with Wimbledon looming.

"It's fantastic to win this final against the player who's certainly the best in the world, the best in history," said Nadal, who has beaten Federer in six of their eight meetings in grand slam finals, four of them in Paris.
