Rafael Nadal became the oldest men's singles champion in Roland-Garros history with a 6-3, 6-3, 6-0 victory over first-time major finalist and No.8 seed Casper Ruud on Sunday.

The 36-year-old claimed an all-time men's record-extending 22nd Grand Slam title and an unprecedented 14th on Parisian clay.


Nadal has now won the Australian Open and Roland-Garros in the same year for the first time in his career and is halfway to a calendar year Grand Slam.

The 23-year-old Ruud is the first Norwegian man in history to reach a Grand Slam final and is projected to rise to a career-high No.6 in the world on Monday.

Kiki and Caro strike again

French duo Kristina Mladenovic and Caroline Garcia clinched their second Roland-Garros doubles title together by overcoming American No.8 seeds Coco Gauff and Jessica Pegula 2-6, 6-3, 6-2 in an exciting final on Court Philippe-Chatrier.

In 2016, Garcia and Mladenovic became the first all-French team to lift the Roland-Garros women's doubles trophy since 1971.

This is Garcia's second women's doubles title on Parisian clay, while Mladenovic now has won four, two with Garcia and two with Timea Babos.
