The Spanish bull lived up to the title ‘King of Clay’ as he showed phenomenal performance in his first appearance at the Roland Garros. The Spaniard managed to win his match comfortably in straight sets against Jordon Thompson from Australia.

The former world No.1 came to the French Open after taking a break due to an issue with his left foot. However, during the match, the foot remained solid and the 21-time Grand Slam champion managed to breeze past his opponent.

With this win, Rafael Nadal surpassed Roger Federer’s record for most wins in a single grand slam. The Spaniard has now won 106 matches at the French Open to Federer’s 105 at Wimbledon.
