Rafael Nadal wins his 14th Roland Garros title and enlarges his legend
Ruud put up some resistance in the first two sets (6-3, 6-3), but the third was entirely up to Nadal, who didn't let go of a single game to take the championship set 6-0.
With this, Rafa Nadal makes his legend even bigger: he reaches 22 Grand Slam championships in his career (more than any other tennis player in history on the men's circuit) and also achieves a 14-0 record in the French Open finals (it is say, he has never lost a Roland Garros final).
With Sunday's victory, Nadal becomes the oldest men's singles champion in Roland Garros history.
