Andy Murray: Nobody will get close to Rafa’s Roland-Garros greatness

Murray thinks no-one will ever get close to Nadal’s 13 French Open titles in a single Grand Slam event.

October 13, 2020

Speaking ahead of his appearance in Cologne, three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray has given his opinion on the incredible Roland-Garros career of Rafael Nadal. The Scot says he cannot imagine anyone ever matching Nadal’s record of 13 titles in Paris.

“What he’s done at Roland-Garros, I don’t think it will ever be beaten,” he said. “I just don’t see it.”

Murray, who will face Fernando Verdasco in first-round action in Cologne, believes that Nadal’s record in Paris will stand the test of time. Nobody will even approach it, he says.

“He’s one short of winning the same amount of Grand Slams as Sampras did, just at one tournament,” Murray said. “It’s incredible, I think it’s one of the best records in sport, maybe the best. I don’t think it will ever be repeated, and I actually don’t think anyone will get close.”
