Tennis Star Nadal Wins Record-extending 14th French Open Title


LAHORE MIRROR (Monitoring Desk)– Spain’s Rafael Nadal beat Norwegian Casper Ruud 6-3 6-3 6-0 to win a record-extending 14th French Open title on Sunday.

Nadal stretched his record of men’s singles Grand Slam titles to 22, two ahead of Serbian Novak Djokovic and Swiss Roger Federer.

French Open champion Rafa Nadal will play at Wimbledon later this month if his body allows him to, the Spaniard said on Sunday after winning Roland Garros for a record-extending 14th time.

“I am going to be in Wimbledon if my body is ready to be in Wimbledon. Wimbledon is not a tournament that I want to miss,” said Nadal, who has been suffering from a chronic foot injury.

Nadal, a double Wimbledon champion, destroyed Norwegian Casper Ruud 6-3 6-3 6-0 to stay undefeated in Roland Garros finals.

The 36-year-old, who has won the season’s first two majors, now owns a men’s record 22 Grand Slam singles titles – two more than nearest rivals Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer.

Wimbledon starts on June 27.
