Nadal adds as many titles as the Navy at Roland Garros

With his triumph against Thiem, the Spaniard added his 12th title at Roland Garros, as many as those achieved by the rest of the Spanish tennis players who won in Paris.


Rafa Nadal made history this Sunday with his twelfth victory at Roland Garros after winning Dominic Thiem in the final. The figures of Nadal in the Parisian tournament impress more and more and give an account of the legend that Nadal has cemented on the slopes next to the Bosque de Bolonia.

Nadal already has as many titles in Roland Garros as all the Armada of Spanish tennis together if we count the titles in male and female category. Manolo Santana opened the list of winners winning the editions of 1961 and 1964. They followed Andrés Gimeno (1972), Arantxa Sánchez Vicario (1989, 1994 and 1998), Sergi Bruguera (1993 and 1994), Carlos Moyá (1998), Albert Costa (2001) ), Juan Carlos Ferrero (2003) and Garbiñe Muguruza (2016) .

Andrés Gimeno was the oldest champion in history, at 34 years and 306 days. Nadal has achieved the 12th with 33 years and 6 days ... and next year he will return to continue enlarging his legend in Paris in search of his title number 13 on the French clay.
