The French Open begins on May 22, and Nadal is one of the favourites to win a record-extending 14th title on the Parisian clay. The 35-year-old managed to make history as the first man ever to win a record 21st Grand Slam trophy in Melbourne at the start of the season and will be gunning to extend his lead to 22 at Roland Garros.

Nadal was defeated by Novak Djokovic in the semi-final last year, and ended up playing just two more matches in August before shutting down his season with a foot injury and undergoing a medical procedure. When he returned this season, he went on a 20 match-winning streak which spanned titles in Melbourne, the Australian Open and Acapulco. His lone loss this year came in the Indian Wells final before his latest injury layoff.
