Rafael Nadal cuts into a cake while celebrating his birthday at Roland Garros on Friday (June 3) in Paris, France.
The Spanish tennis champ turned 25 the same day he beat U.K.’s Andy Murray in straight sets to reach the French Open final. Happy birthday, Rafa!
Rafael will take on Roger Federer in Sunday’s final match – if he wins, he’ll tie Swedish great Bjorn Borg‘s record of six French Open titles.

“Doubts are part of life and so they’re part of sport too. We all have them, but now compared to a week ago it’s totally different. What’s never changed is my desire to play tennis and to be in the top spots of the rankings and to win these types of matches,” he told reporters after Friday’s match.
