It means a lot to me, it means everything :Rafael Nadal

by Kolkata Today

A defiant Rafael Nadal has scripted one of his finest Roland-Garros triumphs, denying Casper Ruud to capture a record-extending 22nd Grand Slam.

A new chapter was added to the most prolific reign on Court Philippe-Chatrier as the Spaniard prevailed 6-3, 6-3, 6-0 over the 23-year-old first-time Grand Slam finalist.

At 36, Nadal became the oldest men’s champion in Paris.
He eclipsed his late compatriot Andres Gimeno’s mark from 50 years ago and elevated his haul on the sport’s biggest stages to 22 majors, two clear of his nearest rivals Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer.

“Without a doubt for me and I think for a lot of people who love the history of this sport, this is the best tournament of the world… You make me feel like home,” Rafael Nadal said.
“For me personally, it’s very difficult to describe the feelings that I have. It’s something that I’ve for sure never believed being here at 36, being competitive again playing on the most important court of my career one more time in a final.
“It means a lot to me, it means everything. It means a lot of energy to try to keep going. I don’t know what can happen in the future but I’m going to keep fighting to try to keep going.”
