Rafael Nadal Breaks Major, all-time Jimmy Connors Record Post-French Open 2020 Win


Nadal, the tennis legend has broken three major records in the year 2020. He won the record-extending 13th French Open title to win a record-equalling 20th Grand Slam title. Now the Spaniard has crossed another milestone in his career, where he has created a record of staying in the top 10 of the ATP ranking for 789 weeks, surpassing a record of 787 weeks registered by Jimmy Connor.

Nadal made his first appearance in the Top 10 on April 25, 2005. The 2005 season still is his best season, with 11 title wins made during the year.

The player is looking forward to making one more record this year, in Paris, next month. This one would be a personal one as if he wins the ATP 1000 Paris Masters title, which he is very hopeful of; he will win his maiden title. If he wins, he will come 1000 points closer to the No.1 player Djokovic.
