Rafael Nadal has won as many French Open titles as Pete Sampras won Grand Slam titles

Rafael Nadal’s 14 French Open titles: 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2022

Pistol Petros Pete Sampras, the most successful player of the 1990s: 2x Australian Open Champion (1995, 1997), 7x Wimbledon Champion (1993-95, 1997-2000), 5x US Open Champion (1990, 1993, 1995-96, 2002), held the outright record for most Men’s Singles Grand Slam titles (14) between 2000 and 2009, now 4th behind Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer.

I hope that puts into perspective what Rafa has done in Paris, which can also be expressed in the form of a meme:
