Nadal is one of the most inspiring athletes in the world who has overcome difficulties during his long career

. .

In the history of tennis, no player has managed to win every Grand Slam title at least twice. The closest to this result were certainly the Big Three, consisting of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. On many occasions they fought to conquer this special record in the final, the last time at Roland Garros 2020, where Novak Djokovic was defeated in the final by the « King of Clay » and thirteen-time winner in Paris Rafael Nadal. clearly dominant of this game.

To reach this record, Rafael Nadal only missed the Australian Open, the first Grand Slam of the year, in which Rafa often had problems and in which he won his only title in the distant year 2009. Rafa will have another chance to hit that record in 2021, but the 2009 one was definitely a historic one.

In a recent interview with Marca, Russian player Andrey Rublev pondered Rafael Nadal’s historic record of 13 French Open titles, claiming that such a record makes everyone else strive for greatness too. The Russian played against Nadal in the last Nitto ATP final in London, but was beaten by the Spaniard in straight sets.

« If someone is able to win a Grand Slam 13 times, you have to try to win at least once, » said Andrey Rublev. « I couldn’t handle the pressure (playing Rafael Nadal in the ATP final), » he added.

« When I showed my feelings from the start, I knew I was done. « Even though Rublev is firmly anchored in the top 10, he still feels like he has to earn his place in the elite of the sport. The Russian is hoping to maintain his ranking for a couple of years so that he can be seen in the same breath as the other mainstays at the top.

« I feel like a top 10 guest, » said Rublev. « To really feel like one of them, I have to find consistency, and that means I’ve been in that position for a couple of years. You can say that Thiem, Zverev or Medwedew deserve to be there. « 

Only recently the 20-time Grand Slam champion won the ATP Sportsmanship Award 2020 for his professionalism and integrity. Setting the right example for the next generation has always been one of Rafael Nadal’s top priorities.

The 39-year-old Spaniard said: “I’ve tried all my life to convey positive values. They tried to raise me like this and I hope they are values ​​that will help some young people grow in appropriate ways. « .
