participated in Roland Garros annually since winning his first record-breaking
22 Grand Slam titles in Paris in 2005.

Nadal has won 22 major titles in his career, including 14 at the Roland Garros
tournament, which he will miss due to recurring injuries that have negatively
affected his physical fitness.
