The Rafael Nadal vs Casper Ruud live stream is almost here, and it's the biggest match in this year's French Open so far — so you won't want to miss the action at Roland-Garros.
Rafael Nadal and Casper Ruud will play each other in the French Open men's final. Nadal seeks his 14th title at Roland Garros and 22nd Grand Slam trophy overall. Both would add to records he already owns. At 36, Nadal would be the oldest champion in French Open history.
Ruud is 23 and appearing in his first major final, the first man from Norway to get that far in singles at any Grand Slam tournament. The two have never met in an official match but have played many practice sets against each other at Nadal's tennis academy in Mallorca because Ruud has been training there for a few years. Ruud considers Nadal his idol and recalls watching the Spaniard's past French Open finals on TV.
Earlier, Iga Swiatek defeated American teenager Coco Gauff 6-1, 6-3 to clinch her second French Open title in three years on Saturday. Swiatek has now won 35 consecutive matches, equalling the longest unbeaten streak since Venus Williams in 2000.
French Open 2022 final live stream: How to watch Rafael Nadal vs Casper Ruud online and on TV today. Everything you need to know as Nadal and Ruud both look to make history at Roland Garros
Rafael Nadal will face Casper Ruud in the men’s French Open final this afternoon after a remarkable Friday at Roland Garros which saw one semi-final delayed by an environmental activist who tied themselves to the net and the other brought to an early end after Alexander Zverev was forced to retire due to a horrendous ankle injury.
Play between Ruud and Marin Cilic was interrupted for around 10 minutes after a protestor, who was wearing a white t-shirt displaying the message, ‘We have 1028 days left’ jumped onto the court on Philippe-Chatrier and chained themselves to the net. The French campaign group Dernière Rénovation claimed responsibility for the protest. In a post on Twitter, the group said a 22-year-old protestor called Alizée had entered the court “to draw attention to the climate emergency”.
Earlier, Zverev was forced to retire from his semi-final against Nadal after the German rolled his ankle and had to leave the court in a wheelchair. With the second set of the match heading for a tie-break after three pulsating hours, Zverev went over his right ankle and was left screaming in agony after what looked to be a horrendous injury.
It means Nadal is through to his 14th French Open final where he will face Ruud, after the 23-year-old became the first Norwegian player to reach a men’s grand slam final by dispatching Cilic in four sets.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the French Open final today.

Nadal may have been struggling with a foot injury but this is Rafa, on Philippe-Chatrier, at Roland Garros. There’s invariably only one winner... Throw in the fact that Ruud could find the experience of a first grand slam final - against the greatest clay-court player of all-time no less - overwhelming and it would be brave to predict anything other than Nadal in straight sets.
French Open 2022, Rafael Nadal vs Casper Ruud Tennis Live Score Streaming: Rafael Nadal has never lost a French Open final. A win on Sunday against first-time Grand Slam finalist Casper Ruud would deliver a record-extending 14th crown to the Spaniard and widen his lead in the men’s race for the most major titles.
Nadal, who turned 36 on Friday, overcame physical ailments and a dismal period of preparation to win the Australian Open in January to take his record-breaking 21st Grand Slam title, breaking a three-way tie with Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic. If he lifts the Musketeers’ Cup again on Sunday, it will be the first time the left-hander has taken the hardcourt major in Melbourne and the Roland Garros title in the same year and would keep him in contention for a calendar Grand Slam.
Sunday’s men’s singles final at Roland-Garros will have a familiar feel, with Rafael Nadal going for a record 14th title, and a fresh feel with Casper Ruud in a Grand Slam final for the first time in his career.
Thirteen years and 21 Grand Slam titles separate these two, but when it comes to the final on Sunday, it will, as always, come down to who handles the occasion the best; who is able to bring their A-game when it’s needed most.
For Nadal, it’s the chance to extend his lead at the top of the Grand Slam standings with title No.22; for Ruud, who has already made history for his country, it’s the chance to put Norwegian tennis on the map in the greatest way imaginable.
