Rafael Nadal is no stranger to setting records at Roland Garros – and he’s just added another one, winning his 200th career Grand Slam match with his second round victory.
The ever-humble Spaniard becomes only the eighth man to achieve the feat.
“I even didn’t know that, so for me, most important thing is a victory in the second round more than the 200 victories,” he said after a straight sets win over Argentinean Facundo Bagnis.
“That’s only another number, and that’s it.”
