Rafael Nadal—a 21-time Grand Slam champion, and 13-time winner at Roland Garros—made a winning beginning to his 2022 campaign on the terre battue today, defeating Jordan Thompson, 6-2, 6-2, 6-2, on Court Philippe Chatrier.

And with his two-hour, two-minute victory over the Australian, he sneaks closer to yet another milestone—it was the 299th Grand Slam win of his career.

He’s closing in on becoming the third man in tennis history to reach 300.

369: Roger Federer (369-60, .860)
324: Novak Djokovic (324-46, .876)
299: Rafael Nadal (299-41, .879)

Over a third of Nadal’s wins at majors have come in Paris, where he’s now 106-3. He’s 76-15 at the Australian Open, 64-11 at the US Open and 53-12 at Wimbledon.

He’s also 62-2 in first-round matches across all the majors now, the only two losses coming at Wimbledon in 2013 (to Steve Darcis) and the Australian Open in 2016 (to Fernando Verdasco). He’s 18-0 in first-round matches at Roland Garros.
