This is something to put Nadal's very special place in the history of clay court history in perspective: French Open titles: 1. Bjorn Borg- 6 2-two way tie. Henri Cochet- 4 2-two way tie. Rafael Nadal- 4 (almost exactly 22 years old) 3- four way tie. Rene Lacoste- 3 3-four way tie. Mats Wilander- 3 3-four way tie. Ivan Lendl- 3 3- four way tie. Gustavo Kuerten- 3 The French Open has been a full fledged slam, open to players from countries outside France, since 1925. Only 7 men in history have won 3 French Open titles. Nadal is one of only 3 in history to win 4, at the tender age of 22. Monte Carlo titles: 1. Rafael Nadal- 4 2-two way tie. Thomas Muster- 3 2-two way tie. Bjorn Borg- 3 This event in fairness is very different then the French Open in the sense it has only been in existence since 1974. So not nearly as long a history and many great players who did not have the opportunity to play it. Still in existence for 34 years now, covering all of Borg, Wilander, Lendl, Vilas, Panatta, Muster, Bruguera, Courier, Kuerten, Rafa is still one of only 3 men to win this prestigious title atleast 3 times, and the only to win it 4. Again at the tender age of 22. Rome titles: 1. Rafael Nadal- 3 2-six way tie. Bjorn Borg- 2 2-six way tie. Vitas Gerulaitis- 2 2-six way tie. Andres Gomez- 2 2-six way tie. Ivan Lendl- 2 2-six way tie. Jim Courier- 2 2-six way tie. Thomas Muster- 2 Again only in existence since 1974 but Rafa is the only man in history to win 3 titles here, and again at only 22.
