Rafael Nadal continues to prove himself as one of the best male tennis players in the world. Nadal adds another achievement winning his 14th Roland Garros – French Open title. That’s now 22 Grand slam men’s single titles for Nadal, the most earned in tennis history. Nadal is also the oldest champion in Roland Garros history. The record was previously held by fellow Spaniard Andres Gimeno.
Nadal, a native of Spain, defeated Norwegian Casper Ruud. Nadal beat Ruud 6-3, 6-3, 6-0. Will this be Nadal’s final French Open? The tennis superstar has suffered setbacks due to his congenital, degenerative foot pain over the last year.
“For me, personally, very difficult to describe the feelings that I have,” Nadal said in his victory speech. “It’s something that I for sure never believed, be here at 36, being competitive again, playing in the most important court of my career one more time in a final means a lot.
“I don’t know what can happen in the future, but I’m going to keep fighting to try to keep going.”
