Could Rafael Nadal catch Roger Federer’s 18? It seemed unlikely at the start of the year but with the way the Spaniard is playing – winning his 10th French Open and third without losing a set – anything seems possible.
Nadal’s win moves him alone on the historic all-time men’s Grand Slam leaderboard with 15, which is three behind Federer’s 18.
Nadal as previously tied with Sampras for the last three years at 14.
