Nadal wins French Open No. 8

Rafael Nadal has turned the French Open into his personal highlight reel. The 27-year-old has won the tournament eight times, more wins than any other player in a single major, and has now won a major in nine straight calendar years. Will he catch, and perhaps even surpass, Roger Federer's 17 major titles? And when a tennis player finds an inordinate amount of success on one surface, as with Nadal, how does that affect his or her legacy?
