2014 French Open – Men's Singles

Rafael Nadal was the four-time defending champion and successfully defended his title, defeating Novak Djokovic in the final, claiming his record-extending ninth French Open crown and his fourteenth Grand Slam, tying him with Pete Sampras in second place for the most Grand Slam titles. Nadal became the first man to win 9 titles at the same grand slam tournament, further distancing himself from the previous record of 7 titles at the same grand slam event which was held a handful of players including Pete Sampras and Roger Federer at Wimbledon. By winning the tournament, Nadal improved his record at Roland Garros to 66–1 and became the first man to win the French Open five times in a row. [1]
