This would be Nadal’s 14th French Open title and his 21st grand slam title. A 21st grand slam title would break the current tie he shares with Roger Federer for most grand slams by a man, all-time. Nadal’s 14th French Open would also extend his lead in terms of being the most grand slams won by any man at any single grand slam event (Djokovic is in second place with 9 Australian Opens).
It’s a tough field though, with the younger generation of stars being more viable than they were a few years ago, and of course, Djokovic. Thiem was knocked out early, so that bodes well for Nadal, but yeah, a lot of guys left that could pose a big challenge for Nadal.
