Nadalâ€™s most successful competition has been the French Open where he has won 14 titles, the most by any player in the tournamentâ€™s history.

His last triumph at a Grand Slam also came in Paris last year where he got the better of Norwayâ€™s Casper Ruud in straight sets with a score of 6â€“3, 6â€“3, 6â€“0.
