On Sunday, Nadal, the greatest ever male player on clay beat Casper Ruud in three straight sets 6-3 6-3 6-0.

It is the first time in Nadal’s career that he has won both the Australia Open and French Open in the same year.

After his injury in Rome three weeks ago, many thought the Spaniard would not be up to full tilt for his favourite surface but he came to Paris and conquered again for the 14th time.
