Nadal wins his 14th French Open title


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

The 36-year-old Spaniard showed all his years of experience to dismantle the Norwegian 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 with a chronic foot problem which has prompted rumours of retirement.
