Roland Garros Day 15 - Rafa's feeling 22, but what about the future?

It's hard to know what to say about the extraordinary Rafael Nadal winning a 14th Roland Garros title and a 22nd Grand Slam title, but Catherine, David and Matt try their best to put his achievement into words. How did Casper Ruud provide the perfect match up for Nadal? Did Ruud's idolisation of Nadal affect the match? In what way did the match not quite feel fitting for the occasion? What does Nadal plan to do now to treat his foot? And will he end up winning the Grand Slam race?
