A year when everything has been pretty far from normal, Nadal’s win gives worldwide tennis fans a reason to celebrate. A true warrior, tireless at heart, limitless ambition – Rafa has shown the world why he is King of Clay.
The proud holder of 86 career titles defeated Djokovic 6-0, 6-2, 7-5 to make a tie with Roger Federer for 20 Grand Slam titles. Mats Wilander commented, “What we saw today tells us that Rafa Nadal most probably has the best chance to go down as the greatest male tennis player of all time. We have our doubts about Roger Federer, of course, can he still win another one because he’s a genius.”
The former World No.1 also added, “With Novak Djokovic being three behind now, he still has a good chance. With Rafa winning here now, it is probably giving him a couple of years to keep on going.”
“First of all, congrats to Novak for another great tournament. Sorry for today,” the Spaniard said with a degree of genuineness. “In Australia [last year] he killed me. Today was for me. That is part of the game. We have played plenty of times together. One day someone wins and another day it is the other. So all the best for the future, Novak.”
“At the same time I want to send a message to everyone around the world. We are facing one of the worst moments that we remember in this world, fighting against this virus. So keep going, stay positive, and all the very best. We will go through this and we will win against the virus soon.”
