It is the first time Rafael Nadal won the Wimbledon title after winning four consecutive French Open titles.

The motivation now for Rafael Nadal is to surpass Pete Sampras’ 14 Grand Slam titles. Rafael Nadal with just 12 Grand Slam titles will have a hard time catching up since he has knee problems troubling him.
