Rafael Nadal landed in Paris today seeking a record 8th French Open title. Because of the time he missed to recover his left knee, Nadal is seeded down this year at No. 3. But his results are as good as ever.
Nadal comes into his favorite tournament of the year on a 15-match winning streak having won six of the eight events he’s entered this year.
Rafa’s record in Roland Garros is an astounding 52-1. No one in the field of 128 has ever beaten Nadal at the tournament or beaten him in best-of-5 on the clay.
Rafa begins his bid either Monday or Tuesday. After landing Rafa hit center court for a two hour practice session with Kevin Anderson before it was cut short by an abrupt rain shower.
Here’s Rafa leaving the airport in Mallorca:
