One 'GOAT' to another: Roger Federer's warm message to Rafael Nadal after latter's record-equalling French Open win

Rafael Nadal destroys Novak Djokovic to win 13th French Open, equals Roger Federer's Grand Slam record
For world number one Djokovic, the defeat ended his hopes of an 18th Slam and of becoming the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to win all four majors twice.
Swiatek is the youngest women's French Open winner since Monica Seles lifted the trophy as an 18-year-old in 1992. She is the first teenage champion since Iva Majoli in 1997.
19-year-old Swiatek broke her for a 3-1 lead and secured a love hold for 4-1 as she won on her first match point with a forehand winner.
This match carries significant weight in the Grand Slam standings that so many fans, and the players themselves, keep tabs on.
Djokovic will now play 'King of Clay' Rafael Nadal in the summit clash.
Djokovic is chasing an 18th Grand Slam title while Nadal is chasing his 20th.
For 34-year-old Nadal, it was a 99th win at Roland Garros since his 2005 debut and put him just one victory away from equalling Roger Federer's all-time record of 20 Grand Slam titles.
Swiatek has won all 12 sets she’s played in the tournament and dropped merely 23 games through a half-dozen matches so far.
The next indication came on the very first point of his French Open quarterfinal against Pablo Carreño Busta, when Djokovic let a ball toss drop and abandoned his serve mid-motion.
Nadal, the 12-time champion, defeated 19-year-old Sinner 7-6 (7/4), 6-4, 6-1 to clinch a 98th victory in his 100th match at the French Open.
It said that the police are investigating possible charges of organized fraud and sporting corruption.
Djokovic faced his toughest assignment so far but Khachanov was unable to derail his bid to become the first man in half a century to win all four Grand Slam titles twice.
Former Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova reached the French Open quarters for the first time in eight years by beating Zhang Shuai 6-2, 6-4.
Iga Swiatek, the only teenager who reached the fourth round, avenged a crushing defeat by Simona Halep at the same stage last year.
