Nadal French Open campaign is “the best in sports history”

Andy Murray thinks Rafael Nadal’s 13 French Open titles is among the greatest achievements in sporting history and one that will never be topped.

Andy Murray thinks Rafael Nadal’s 13 French Open titles is among the greatest achievements in sporting history and one that will never be topped.

Nadal’s victory over Novak Djokovic on Sunday means the Spaniard has won five more titles than any other male player at a single grand slam and two more than Margaret Court’s record at the Australian Open.

He also equals Roger Fereder’s record of 20 grand slam titles at the top of the men’s all-time list.

Three-time grand slam winner Murray has twice beaten Nadal at majors but has suffered two defeats to the world No. 2 at the French Open.

Murray, who lost to Stan Wawrinka in the first round of this year’s French Open, said he thinks Djokovic or Nadal could end up outstripping Federer in the all-time list.

“Providing they all stay fit and if they retire all at the same age, then I would think it would be between Rafa and Novak,” said Murray, when asked who of the “Big Three” could capture the most grand slam titles.
