"It's the greatest achievement in sport" - John Lloyd on Nadal's 14 Roland Garros triumphs
In an interview with the BBC, the former British No. 1, John Lloyd, gave his thoughts on Nadal's 2022 French Open triumph.
The former player had many great things to say about Nadal who recently made tennis history by winning the Roland Garros for the 14th time. He said:
"He's a monster. It's beyond belief. When he won this 14th French, I'd love people to write in and challenge me on this. I know we're biased because it's tennis but is there a greater performance by an individual in any sporting event to do what he's achieved. Apart from the fact he's won the most Slams, put that one away. You can argue people didn't play and all that stuff. But 14 French Opens is I think the greatest sport achievement of any person in history."
"He's only lost to two guys at the French Open ever. That was Novak Djokovic twice and Robin Soderling - people might remember him. Of all the statistics that have come out of this great era in tennis on the men's side, in the locker room what stops people in their tracks the most is 14 French Opens for Rafa."
