Good on ya, Nads!

Incredible! This man will never be rivaled, especially on clay. Big big fan. Hope he can continue, but the amount of pressure he puts his body through must be intense. Not sure how much longer he can last. Throughout this tournament, he's dug a few holes for himself, but he's always come back at the crucial moments. And to win the last nine games!

Great day. Rafa extending his GS to a record 22, and Wales 'beating' Ukraine to go to the World Cup. What more can we ask? Go Rafa! Go Cymru!

My mistake. Rafa was down 1-3 in the second set which means he won the last 11 games.

Two clear of Djokovic.

With years of experience, awesome hunger, and ambition to excel, he is wielding his racket in style. 14 French Open titles, that's incredible. Congrats to champion Rafa Nadal and to the young and upcoming runner up Casper Ruud. Well played.

Awesome athlete, no doubt. But one small issue I and many others have is the special treatment given to Nadal with the time given to him between serves to fulfill his OCD fingers to shoulder
