Nadal wins 14th French Open and record-extending 22nd Grand Slam


Rafael Nadal won his 14th French Open title and record-extending 22nd Grand Slam by seeing off Casper Ruud in Sunday's final at Roland Garros.

The 36-year-old Spaniard showed all his years of experience to dismantle the Norwegian eighth seed 6-3 6-3 6-0 on Court Philippe Chatrier.

Nadal, who has lost only three times at Roland Garros since his debut in 2005, is two days past his 36th birthday and suffering with a chronic foot problem which has prompted rumours of retirement.

But he brushed aside Ruud in their first competitive meeting to take him two ahead of great rivals Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer.
