About a month ago we witnessed the result of the intervention of world tennis history by right. Spanish champion Rafael Nadal made one of the most extraordinary “returns” in the history of the sport and won his 21st Grand Slam title, beating all-time rivals Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.
Nadal was suspended for several months with a foot injury that effectively kept him out throughout 2021 and forced him to end the season prematurely. The Iberian tennis player started 2022 in great fashion and took advantage of the great opportunity given to him by his great rival Novak Djokovic, who is absent in Melbourne due to his choice not to be vaccinated.
Nadal played an excellent tournament and in the final made an exciting comeback for the new world number one Russian tennis player, Daniil Medvedev. Medvedev was two sets ahead and had three consecutive break points to advance into the third set, but as usual Rafa never gave up and responded to the greatest with an exceptional feat.
Bjorn Borg’s words on Rafael Nadal
It’s great, he’s regained the mobility he had two years ago. Last year at Roland Garros he didn’t move like that and I think that’s one of the reasons why Novak Djokovic beat him. Of course, I never understood if he was injured in that match, but in Australia I saw the real Rafa again.”
Rafael Nadal is the male tennis player with the most Grand Slam titles in history and has outpaced his all-time rivals Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic in this eternal battle, thus topping the ranking that has always locked all fans eagerly anticipating.
