Every night at the end of play at Roland Garros, Eurosport's
resident expert and seven-times Grand Slam winner Mats Wilander takes an
in-depth look at the big issues of the day.

In the latest edition Wilander explains the reasons why Rafael
Nadal was able to beat Andy Murray.

The difference between the two players, according to Mats, was
Nadal's ability to secure the really big points, while Murray could not take advantage of his break

Mats also believes that the world number one made better use of the
gusty conditions, using the wind to help his slice rather than battling against
the conditions as Murray did.
