The organization of the Roland Garros 2020 has long been troubled because of the global Covid-19 pandemic that has plagued the world, and France severely, also in these days of September, with many infections. This year between safety protocols and very important absences, such as that of Roger Federer the Parisian Slam will experience one of the most atypical seasons of its long history: for the first time it will be played not in lat spring but at the gates of autumn .
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.
