Rafael Nadal‘s greatest talent was exposed by former American champion John McEnroe. To elaborate, McEnroe said “Never before have I seen anyone so determined to win every ball. I always considered Jimmy Connors to be the greatest player of all time, but Rafael Nadal has surpassed him.
That’s without a doubt his most impressive talent. He’s a fantastic player who’s only gotten better with experience, and he’ll stop at nothing to secure victory. It’s everyone’s dream to one day be as successful as him, but few ever come close.
Since no one else would if it were possible. It might seem simple to tell Nick Kyrgios that he can be world number one or two if he just tries his hardest. That’s not something he’s naturally good at.” Novak Djokovic was another topic covered by John: “There is no question that he is one of the best of all time, but he does not receive the praise he deserves.
Let’s cross our fingers and pray he gets a visa to America.”
Until 2022, Rafael Nadal has been dominant.
Rafael Nadal‘s early-season exploits have shocked tennis fans everywhere. The Spanish sensation has returned from an extended absence due to injury and won the first two Majors of 2022.
When the 36-year-old Majorcan won the Australian Open and the French Open, he moved past Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic in the all-time Grand Slam rankings. After winning Wimbledon for the seventh time, the Serbian has closed the gap, but he still won’t have enough time to get to the US to play in the US Open.
Meanwhile, Rafa’s torn abdominal muscles kept him out of the Wimbledon semi-finals. This week, the former world number one got back into shape and is scheduled to return to Montreal the beginning of next month. From August 7-14, the Iberian will be present in Quebec, as confirmed by the director of the Canadian Masters 1000. The Majorcan hopes to return to form for the US Open, which he last competed in in 2019.
