Nadal hands a point to Djokovic with a double fault to give the Serb a lifeline. 15-30.
GAME DJOKOVIC 4-3. Game very much back on!! Some weak looking shots from Nadal in that game but credit to Djokovic and we are back on serve.
Quite possibly. Long way to go!
GAME DJOKOVIC 4-4. Djokovic right back in this match now. Levelled up in the fourth, can Nadal produce better than in his last service game?
Djokovic can sense Nadal is breakable and yells out as he misses the chance for 15-30.
GAME NADAL 5-4. Hardly anything on that Nadal serve again but Djokovic sends the return long and now must serve to stay in the match.
It sounds stupid to say but Nadal would love to get the job done here. He is certainly not at the peak of his powers as this game wears on and a fifth set could be a real scrap.
What a shot from Nadal. Backhand across the court flies past Djokovic who had come into the net. The "Rafa, Rafa" chants are up, it's 30-30.
It's a double fault from Djokovic and Nadal wins 3-6 7-5 6-2 6-4.
Rafael Nadal celebrates his ninth French Open title and becomes the first man to win five in a row at Roland Garros. Djokovic's wait for a win in Paris must wait for another year.
Big shame that it ended on a double fault. Djokovic disturbed by someone in the crowd.
Anyway, that's all from me. Many thanks for following today's blog and I will be back for Wimbledon in just a couple of weeks time! Congratulations Rafa, NINE time French Open champion.
