Rafael Nadal Wins His 14th French Open Title

Rafael Nadal won his 14th French Open title and record-extending 22nd Grand Slam by seeing off Casper Ruud in Sunday’s final at Roland Garros.

Rafael Nadal claims his 22nd Grand Slam title, which extends his men’s record and ties Steffi Graf for second-most major singles titles in the Open Era, behind only Serena Williams’ record of 23. At 36, Nadal is now 112-3 at Roland Garros.

The 36-year-old Spaniard showed all his years of experience to tear down the Norwegian eighth seed 6-3 6-3 6-0 on Court Philippe Chatrier.

Nadal, who has lost only three times at Roland Garros since his debut in 2005, is two days past his 36th birthday and suffering from a chronic foot problem that has prompted rumors of retirement.

But he brushed aside Ruud in their first competitive meeting to take him two ahead of great rivals Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer.
