Rafael Nadal’s performance at the French Open is the single greatest active sports record today. With nine titles and only one loss, he is reaching the hallowed ground of Russell’s 11 rings, DiMaggio’s 56-game hit streak, and Ripken’s 2,632 consecutive games as the untouchable numbers in sports. In honor of the King of Clay’s latest victory, Nike created this Nadal sculpture.

Congrats to Rafa on extending his streak of dominance, and also for unseating Terrence Maddox as the greatest living model today.
