In Sunday’s final, the Spaniard created one of his best results at Roland Garros, beating Novak Djokovic after losing only seven games to extend his win-loss record to 100-2 on the Paris clay court.
Murray said, “I didn’t see much of the match, I was practicing as it went on. I saw a little bit at the end. Amazing achievement.View this post on InstagramMerci Paris!!! Merci a tous!!!! #Vamos A post shared by Rafa Nadal (@rafaelnadal) on Oct 12, 2020 at 1:00am PDT “Of course he might win another one and make it 14 or 15, whatever he ends up with, but he’s one less to win the same amount of Gra Gra. “It’s amazing. I think it’s one of the best sports records, maybe the best. I don’t think it can ever be repeated and I don’t think anyone’s going to come close to it. “Nadal’s win earned him his 20th overall Grand Slam title, tying him in the best list of all-time men with Roger Federer and putting him three places ahead of Djokovic. For years, the race for the top spot has been heating up and M For the first time in three years, Murray played at Roland Garros, but it was not a happy experience as the Scot experienced the joint worst loss of his career in a Slam against Stan Wawrinka in the first round. This week, he returns to bett1HULKS Indoors in Cologne, where he will meet his old rival Fernando Verdasco in the first round. Murray remains confident that he will be better for himself. I think with the place and all, they did a very good job here. It’s good, really. I hope that I’ll be able to do better than I did in Paris. Hard courts indoors have been a nice surface for me. Obviously, drawing here is pretty difficult, but that’s what I want to do. I want to try to win. I expect to have a successful year with more matches, more tournaments and a preparation time before the new year in the next couple of months. Murray’s re-election to the ATP Players’ Council, where he will be represented alongside Nadal, Federer and other players, was an interesting development on Monday. Djokovic recently resigned from the council to form the Professional Tennis Players Union, a separate players’ body, and these are troubled times in tennis politics. The ATP also announced Monday that a player was suspended from the St. Petersburg tournament after testing positive for Covid-19.
