French Open Tennis : Rafael Nadal Shows Off His 14th French Open Trophy

French open champion Rafael Nadal posed with his trophy in Paris after winning Roland Garros for a record-extending 14th time.

Nadal destroyed Norwegian Casper Ruud 6-3, 6-3 and 6-nil to stay undefeated in Roland Garros finals.

The 36-year-old now owns a men's record 22 grand slam singles titles - two more than nearest rivals Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer.

Nadal, a double Wimbledon champion, said he will play at Wimbledon, which starts on June 27, if his body allows him.

Nadal explained that he had played Sunday's final with a numbed foot thanks to a series of injections throughout the tournament, but that he would not go through a similar procedure again for the grasscourt grand slam.
