This is a statue of Rafael Nadal that Nike commissioned to be made out of French Open clay. When Nadal defeated Novak Djokovic on Sunday, it was his fifth year in a row winning at Roland Garros, and ninth out of 10. Nadal only lost two sets in the entire tournament this year. His run — and that statue — are incredible.
