Rafael Nadal will have to go through Corentin Moutet in the second round of the 2022 French Open as he guns for a record 14th title in Paris.

The Spaniard kicked off his campaign with a 6-2, 6-2, 6-2 win over Jordan Thompson in the first round on Monday. Nadal seemed healthy enough and the foot issue that had bothered him in the lead-up to the tournament didn't slow him down at all.

It was Nadal's 106th victory at the French Open, as well as his 299th in Grand Slams.
