Rafael Nadal won his 14th French Open title on Sunday, beating Casper Ruud in straight sets (6-3, 6-3, 6-0) in the 2022 men’s final. The championship adds to Rafa’s record for most French Open titles, and our champ now boasts an impressive 112-3 career record at Roland Garros. He has now won the men’s singles title at the French Open in 14 of the last 18 years.
With another clay-court trophy, Rafa now has 22 Grand Slam titles, two ahead of Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic.
After also winning the Australian Open in January, Rafa has claimed back-to-back major titles for the first time since 2010 – when he won the French Open, Wimbledon and US Open in a row.
Two days after his 36th birthday, our champ becomes the oldest French Open men’s singles champion and surpasses fellow Spaniard Andres Gimeno, who won aged 34 in 1972.
