French Open 2022 Final: Rafael Nadal wins 22nd Grand Slam title, defeats Casper Ruud in straight sets in French Open final

It is the first time Nadal has won the Australian Open and Roland Garros trophies in the same season and he is now level with countryman Carlos Alcaraz on a Tour-leading four titles in 2022 after improving to 112-3 at the clay-court major.

Nadal’s achievement in Paris is even more remarkable considering that he struggled with a chronic foot injury in defeat to Denis Shapovalov in Rome little more than three weeks ago.

However, he showcased his trademark fighting qualities throughout the fortnight in Paris to ensure he would maintain his stranglehold, improving to a remarkable 14-0 in Roland Garros finals.

Nadal started the final against Casper Ruud with a 6-3 victory in the first set against Casper Ruud on Sunday.

In front of a raucous crowd on Court Philippe Chatrier, the 36-year-old produced an intense and aggressive first-set performance, hitting his forehand with heavy topspin to outmanoeuvre the Norwegian and move ahead.

After making a slow start to the second set, the Spaniard rallied from 1-3 by returning to basics. He hung in points, won the longer exchanges and produced an array of stunning passing shots off both wings to take further control, before racing clear in the third set to secure another memorable victory after two hours and 20 minutes.

With the victory, Nadal will now move to No.4 in the ATP Rankings. The Spaniard also has become the third player to earn four Top 10 wins at a Grand Slam since the ATP Rankings started in 1973. Mats Wilander at Roland Garros in 1982 and Roger Federer at the Australian Open in 2017 also achieved the feat.
