Rafael Nadal has beaten Casper Ruud to lift the French Open trophy for an incredible 14th time.

Nadal won the game in straight sets 6-3 6-3 6-0 keeping his 100% success rate in the championship round at the claycourt major.

The win also gave Nadal his 22nd Grand Slam title and put him two clear of Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer in the men’s race for the most major titles.

Nadal passed fellow Spaniard Andres Gimeno as the oldest men’s singles champion.

In the women’s final top seed Iga Swiatek beat Coco Gauff in straight sets to win her second Grand Slam title.

Poland’s Swiatek, 21, won 6-1 6-3 against the American teenager to record her 35th straight victory – equalling the longest WTA streak this century.

Gauff, 18, was contesting a first major singles final and made a nervy start.

Swiatek, who also won Roland Garros in 2020, took full advantage and went on to win her sixth successive title.

The win maintained her streak of winning in the finals, extending that record to nine in a row.
