Rafael Nadal Wins Record 10th French Open

A former concert promoter, Amin Andy Lakha has spent the last 26 years in real estate development and presently serves as CEO of Lakha Investments. Outside of his professional responsibilities, Amin Andy Lakha is an avid tennis fan who counts Rafael Nadal as his favorite player.

A native of Spain, Nadal cemented his status as one of the best tennis players of all time in June by winning his 10th French Open title. In doing so, Nadal became the first man to win any of the four grand slams on 10 separate occasions. It was his 15th career grand slam championship, which puts him ahead of Pete Sampras into second in majors won behind Roger Federer. 

The 31 year old won his first French Open in 2005 after having to withdraw from the previous two tournaments due to injury. That year, he defeated Mariano Puerta of Argentina in a four-set match. It was the first of four straight tournament championships for Nadal, who became only the third player to win the French Open without dropping a set when he won the tournament in 2008. In 2017, Nadal defeated Switzerland's Stan Wawrinka in straight sets.
