Oyogist has learned that award winning tennis champion, Rafeal Nadal clinched a record-breaking 21st grand slam title after beating Daniil Medvedev 2-6 6-7 6-4 6-4 7-5 in an Australian Open final.
The Spaniard has surpassed the previous men’s record of 20 which he had held alongside Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic.
There had been major doubts about whether or not Nadal would even be fit enough to play at the Australian Open after missing the second half of 2021 with a foot injury.
“I feel lucky just playing tennis,”
“I’m playing with a great tactical, positive feelings. I feel a little bit alive again, attitude, the competitive spirit, so yeah, I’ve missed that feeling sometimes. I am enjoying it.
“I know the pressure is not much for me now. I never believed I would have the chance to be where I am today, so I’m just enjoying every single moment.” Nadal said in an interview with Eurosport.
