Rafael Nadal wins his 14th French Open title, defying both time and Casper Ruud.
Rafael Nadal has treated his advancing age with total disdain in recent years, as he has approached the twilight of his career. While others see silver linings in its maturation, he sees none at OKBet Tennis 2022.
It has gradually eroded one of his most valuable assets, his athleticism. It has made his body, which has already suffered far too many injuries, even more vulnerable to them. Regardless, he has approached his career for the past 20 years with the same positive attitude, calmness, acceptance, and fight, and has continued to perform wonders in the process.
After a fortnight of summoning his best tennis only when it was absolutely necessary, Nadal picked apart Casper Ruud even when he wasn’t at his best for much of the match, winning the final 11 games to clinch a remarkable, record-extending 14th French Open title: 6-3, 6-3, 6-0 at OKBet Tennis 2022.
Nadal has also increased his men’s all-time grand slam title total to 22, putting him well ahead of his two main rivals, Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer, who both have 20 major titles.
Two days after his 36th birthday, and 17 years after first winning here as a precocious 19-year-old, Nadal has now won for long enough to become the oldest French Open men’s champion in history, breaking Andrés Gimeno’s 50-year record. After winning the Australian Open in January, he is now halfway to the grand slam for the first time in his career.
After his chronic foot injury relapsed at the Italian Open, speculation about Nadal’s future dominated the buildup to the tournament. He was miserable that night in Rome and has spent the past two weeks speaking skeptically about his foot’s longterm prospects in the absence of a permanent medical solution.
