In beating Dominic Thiem in the 2019 French Open final, Rafael Nadal moved to 12 Roland Garros titles and an overall record of 93-2 at the Bois de Boulogne.

Given that the Spaniard has won 98% of matches at Roland Garros, like many tennis followers, I wonder if that's the greatest stat of any sportsperson?

I wrote a piece on Nadal's record for Paddy Power News and compared it with some incredible feats in other individual sports. Usual disclaimer, you must be over 18 to visit their site. Check out my piece here.
