Rafael Nadal is the undisputed ruler of the Roland Garros: with 12 titles he holds the record for the most number of titles won in Paris. Considered the greatest tennis player ever on clay, the Spaniard rewrote the history of the French Open, thanks to memorable performances.
Here are the best five matches he played in Paris: against Nicolas Almagro in 2008 fourth round, against Mariano Puerta in 2005 final, against Roger Federer in 2006 final, against Novak Djokovic in 2013 semi-final and again against Federer in 2011 final.
This is one of the memories of past days as the COVID-19 pandemic has led to the season's suspension over time. The tournament organisers are optimistic about it being played this year although there is a lot of uncertainty regarding its 2020 schedule.
