Not many PLAYED 14 @rolandgarros tournaments. He won it 14 times. There is no word to describe this feat. Don't think good old Phillippe would mind if his court changes the name to Rafael Nadal - statue is not enough— Ivan Ljubicic (@theljubicic) June 5, 2022
It’s really hard to imagine anyone EVER being like Mr @RafaelNadal …especially on red clay.— Patrick McEnroe (@PatrickMcEnroe) June 5, 2022

It just goes to show that hard work, passion, and a “never give up” attitude really goes a long way. You have put your time, heart, and soul into this, and your perseverance made this #14. https://t.co/9oe3pfA054
