French Open Men's Singles Last Ten Winners

Here's a table showing the last ten French Open Men's winne🉐rs including the beaten finalist and ꦅset score:

YearChampion (WR)Runner Up (WR)Set Score
2023Novak Djokovic (3)Casper Ruud (4)3-0
2022Rafael Nadal (5)Casper Ruud (8)3-0
2021Novak Djokovic (1)Stefanos Tsitsipas (5)3-2
2020Rafael Nadal (2)Novak Djokovic (1)3-0
2019Rafael Nadal (2)Dominic Thiem (4)3-1
2018Rafael Nadal (1)Dominic Thiem (8)3-0
2017Rafael Nadal (4)Stan Wawrinka (3)3-0
2016Novak Djokovic (1)Andy Murray (2)3-1
2015Stan Wawrinka (9)Novak Djokovic (1)3-1
2014Rafael Nadal (1)Novak Djokovic (2)3-1

A near French Open dominance for Rafael Nadal may be coming to an end as Rafa failed to make the French Open in 2023 due to injury and the Spaniard has indicated 2024 will likely be his last year on the ATP Tour. Rafa has won the French Open title on fourteen occasions since 2005, the blank years being 2009 (4th round defeat to Robin Soderling), 2015 (Quarter Final defeat to Novak Djok🐈ovic), he withdrew with an injury after the second round in 2016 and a semi final defeat to Novak Djokovic in 2021 and was absent in 2023.

  • No player outside the top 9 in the world has made the French Open final in the last ten years.
  • Seven finals were contested by players both ranked in the top 5 in the world. 

So finding an each way long shot to make the final outside o๊f the world's top ten would have been largely fruitless. 

Obviously the winners trends for six of the last ten years focus solely on Rafa Nadal, however it's worth✨ noting particularly the clay court form of potential challengers in the main lead up events in Rome, Barcelona, Madrid and Monte Carlo.

French Open Ladies Singles Last Ten Winners

Here'✅s a table showing the last ten French Open Ladies winners including the beaten finalist and set score:

YearChampion (WR)Runner Up (WR)Set Score
2023Iga Swiatek (1)Karolina Muchova (43)2-1
2022Iga Swiatek (1)Coco Gauff (23)2-0
2021Barbora Krejcikova (33)A. Pavlyuchenkova (32)2-1
2020Iga Swiatek (54)Sofia Kenin (6)2-0
2019Ashleigh Barty (8)Marketa Vondrousova (38)2-0
2018Simona Halep (1)Sloane Stephens (10)2-1
2017Jelena Ostapenko (47)Simona Halep (4)2-1
2016Garbine Muguruza (4)Serena Williams (1)2-0
2015Serena Williams (1)Lucie Safarova (13)2-1
2014Maria Sharapova (8)Simona Halep (4)2-1

Iga Swiatek secured 🅷her third French Open title victory in 2023 and became the first player to retain tꦍhe French Open Women's Singles title since Justine Henin in 2007.

Interesting to note the better ranked player of the two fina💫lists has won only five of the last ten finals, we have seen Jelena Ostapenko win in 2017 ranked just inside the top 50, Marketa Vondrousova make the final in 2019 when ranked just inside the top 40 and 2020 saw world number 54 Iga Swiatek (now a three time French Open winner) stun the tennis world with a straight sets win over Austral🐬ian Open champion Sofia Kenin. The 2021 final saw Barbora Krejcikova ranked 33 defeat Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova ranked 32.

  • Two winners since 2017 had previously progressed no further than the 2nd round at the French Open, Ostapenko had not made it past the 1st round.
  • Predicting the finalists has been a little tricky with just three of the last ten finals contested by two players in the current top ten in the world.

World Ranking

  • 7/10 winners were ranked in the top 8 in the world
  • 4/10 won by the current world number one

Career Clay Court Statistics & Slam Form

  • 10/10 won at least 62% of their career clay court matches
  • 10/10 won at least 40 career clay court matches
  • 6/10 were maiden grand slam title winners, all since 2016

Current Clay Court Form

  • All last ten French Open Ladies Singles winners played (with mixed success) in the WTA Rome prior to winning in Paris, just two making the Rome final and one winning. 
  • Seven of the last ten winners also played the WTA Madrid on route and six contested the WTA Stuttgart with three winning the latter.

Here is a chart showing how the French Open Ladies Singles winner has performed at these three clay court tournaments in the current season 🐻prior to winning here:

  • Prior to Iga Swiatek winning in 2022, only Maria Sharapova (2012 & 2014) and Serena Williams (2013) managed to win one of the above clay court tournaments in the same season before going on to victory in the French Open Women's Singles.
