Rafael Nadal won his ninth French Open title on Sunday, living up to his name as the "King of Clay."

Well, it's only fitting that the "King of Clay" also be made out of clay.

According to Nadal's Twitter account, Nike created a sculpture of the tennis icon using the surface he’s been so dominant on -- the clay from Roland Garros.
