Nadal, Halep 1st pair of No. 1 French Open champs since 1992

PARIS — Rafael Nadal and Simona Halep needed strong French Open showings to hold onto their top rankings. They did just that, becoming the first pair of ATP and WTA No. 1s to both win the title at Roland Garros since Jim Courier and Monica Seles in 1992.

Nadal sits barely ahead of No. 2 Roger Federer on Monday, with a 100-point lead of 8,770 to 8,670.

They would have switched places if the Spaniard had failed to win his record-extending 11th championship Sunday.
