Rafael Nadal wins 14th French Open title

Rafael Nadal has won his fourteenth title at the French Open final in Paris against Casper Ruud. 

This victory is coming after a one-year-long hiatus for Rafael Nadal and it was said to be a game of Master and Apprentice because Ruud had trained at the Rafael Nadal Academy in Mallorca since 2018. 

This was his first grand slam final, Ruud would be playing with Rafael Nadal who he had always admired and the 23-year-old player was easily outshined by Rafael Nadal who won all three sets; 6-3 6-3 6-0. This win has made Rafael Nadal who had won his first French Open title seventeen years ago, the oldest men’s singles champion at the French Open.

“For me, it’s very difficult to describe the feelings that I have, It’s something that I for sure never believed I’d be here at 36, being competitive again, playing in the most important court of my career on one more final — it means a lot to me.” Rafael Nadal said in his interview. 

Ruud had started very well in the first set, leading 3 – 1 but soon Nadal took over and Ruud could not even record a point in the last set.

“We all know what a champion you are and today I got to feel how it is to play against you in the final. It’s not easy and I’m not the first victim — I know that there have been many before.”
