Andy Murray: Thinks Rafael Nadal’s 13 French Open titles is among the greatest accomplishments in sporting history and one that will never be topped.
Nadal’s success over Novak Djokovic on Sunday signifies the Spaniard has gained five titles than any other man player in one grand slam and more than Margaret Court’s listing in the Australian Open. He also equals Roger Fereder’s listing of 20 grand slam titles at the peak of the men’s all-time record.
“It’s an amazing achievement,” said Murray, who was speaking to reporters ahead of an ATP 250 event in Cologne, based on Reuters. “I really don’t think what he has done at Roland Garros will ever be defeated.
He is one short of winning the same amount at just one tournament as Pete Sampras did in grand slams. “I think it’s one of the greatest records in-game, maybe the best. I don’t think that it will ever be repeated and that I really do not think anybody will get close to it.”
