There are many reasons why #rafaelnadal is regarded as the best clay-court player in the history of #tennis. Today’s unprecedented 10th title in Paris further cements his legacy. 

To celebrate, #nike looks back at 10 of Rafa’s most memorable records and successes at the tournament.

  • This was his 13th time competing for the title in Paris

  • He first won in 2005, at the age of 19, which was also his first year playing in the tournament

  • He won all five men’s singles titles from 2010 to 2014 (the record)

  • He earned a 39-match winning streak between the first round in 2010 and the quarter-finals in 2015 (another record)

  • He holds the men’s singles record with 79 total match wins

  • He has only been beaten three times on clay in Paris

  • He remains undefeated in the finals

  • Rafa has played 56 matches on Centre Court, another men’s singles record

  • With 15 major titles, Rafa is the second most decorated men’s #tennis player of all time — 10 of his 15 titles have been won in Paris

  • The inseam of his shorts has gone from 18 inches to four inches over the years of victory

To further honor Rafa’s latest record, Nike is releasing commemorative T-shirts and a limited number of pairs of NikeCourt #tennis Classic El Decimo shoes, available June 12 exclusively at #nike Paris Champs-Élysées.
