Data check: Rafael Nadal goes past Roger Federer’s record of most wins at a single Grand Slam


With his straight-sets win at Roland Garros on Saturday in the third round, the king of clay added another jewel to his crown. Rafael Nadal’s 103rd win at the French Open, where he has a record 13 titles, put him on top of the list of most men’s singles match victories at a single Grand Slam.

Roger Federer held the record previously, with 102 wins at both the Australian Open and Wimbledon. The 39-year-old has six titles in Melbourne and eight in London.

Nadal now has an incredible 103-2 record at Roland Garros and another championship will give him the sole lead in the men’s Grand Slam race. He is currently tied with Federer on 20 Majors each.

The world No 3 reached the fourth round for the 16th time on Saturday with his third win of 2021 over Britain’s Cameron Norrie.

Nadal, chasing a 14th Roland Garros title and record-setting 21st Grand Slam, won 6-3, 6-3, 6-3 and goes on to face Italian teenager Jannik Sinner for a place in the last eight.
