Rafael Nadal’s Roland Garros record the best in sport: Andy Murray


Rafael Nadal’s record of 13 French Open singles titles is one of the game’s untouched most prominent accomplishments and one that is probably not going to actually be broken, Andy Murray has said.

Spaniard Nadal beat Novak Djokovic 6-0 6-2 7-5 in the Roland Garros last on Sunday to draw level with Roger Federer on 20 Grand Slam titles.

“It’s a stunning accomplishment,” Murray told correspondents in Cologne in front of an ATP 250 occasion. “I don’t think what (Nadal) has done at Roland Garros will actually be beaten.

“He’s one shy of winning a similar sum at only one competition as Pete Sampras did in Grand Slams.

“I believe it’s probably the best record in sport, perhaps the best.

“I don’t figure it will actually be rehashed and I really don’t figure anybody will draw near to it.”

Of the ‘Large Three’, Murray figured it would be Nadal or Djokovic (17 majors) who might complete their vocations with the most Grand Slam titles.

“Giving they all stay fit and on the off chance that they resign all at a similar age, at that point I would figure it would be among Rafa and Novak,” he said.
