Rafael Nadal Demolishes Casper Ruud, Reestablishes Himself As King Of Clay

Spanish professional tennis player Rafael Nadal confirmed he’s the king of clay again by winning a historic 14th French Open title.

Nadal was pitted against Casper Ruud and overcame his rival in straight sets to win the 2022 French Open Grand Slam title at Roland Garros yesterday, Sunday, May 5.

The Spaniard triumphed 6-3 6-3 6-0 after almost two hours of a fierce court battle. It’s been a long career of many wins for Nadal, who won his first French Open in 2005. In the intervening years, he had gone on to win 22 Grand Slam titles – a record for any player.

That record puts him ahead of his closest court rivals, Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer.

In a post soon after his latest win, Nadal showed off his cup and thanked his fans worldwide for their support. He shared his message in English and Spanish for the benefit of those who might not understand one of the languages.

He also shouted out his rival Casper Ruud for an “amazing tournament” while also wishing him the best always.

Cassper Ruud might have lost to Nadal, but he believes the best is yet to come – as seen in the caption to his post on Sunday. And fans have been congratulating him.
