Rafael Nadal and Iga Swiatek are all over the news because of their stunning run and triumph at the 126th edition of the Roland Garros that recently got over. Nadal won his record-extending 22nd Grand Slam while Swiatek won her second in Paris, France.

Nadal won his 14th Grand Slam in Paris, France, defeating Casper Ruud in straight sets with a score of 6-3, 6-3, 6-0. The Spanish professional now has two more Grand Slams than rivals Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic, who each have 20. The Spaniard began his 2022 season by winning the ATP Summerset tournament, followed by an unprecedented 21st Grand Slam victory at the Australian Open. He then clinched the Mexican Open title before falling in the final as his first loss at the Indian Wells Masters at the hands of Taylor Fritz. The Spaniard then took a sabbatical before returning to clay in Rome, Italy.

The 22 times major champion Nadal who owned both the Grand Slams of the year, said that he is happy with what he has and nothing can change it, not even his rival winning trophies more than him. “If Novak wins 23 Majors and I stay with 22, I won’t be bothered. My happiness will not change at all. Not even one per cent,” said Nadal to CNN.

The 36-year-old will be taking a rest for time to take care of his foot and hopes to come back for the grass-court major, Wimbledon.
