French Open 2022 Final, Live Score Updates: Rafael Nadal takes on Casper Ruud in the ongoing final of the French Open men’s singles. After the set up, Nadal managed to break Ruud twice in the third set and now the Norwegian leads 4-0. Despite being broken early in the second serve, Nadal responded with two breaks of his own before finishing the second set 6-3. Earlier, Nadal won the first set 6-3 after breaking Ruud’s serve twice. The Norwegian managed to break Nadal back once, but his poor first service percentage saw him come second best. If Nadal manages to win the match, he would post a record-lengthening 14th Roland Garros win and also bring his Grand Slam tally to 22. Earlier this year, Nadal had won the Australian Open to break the triple Grand Slam tie with Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic, bringing his total to 21 titles. If Nadal manages to win the French Open, it would be the first time he would have won both the Australian Open and the French Open in the same year.

In the semifinals, Alexander Zverev had to stop halfway through the second set and Nadal reached the final. On the other hand, Ruud Marin outclassed Cilic in the semifinals.
