Legend thinks it will be intriguing to watch if Rafael Nadal can.

In the men’s circuit, a number of rising prospects have recently risen through the ranks. Despite the impending generational shift, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic split the first three Grand Slams of 2022 as usual.

Despite dealing with ongoing foot injury, the Spanish sensation won the Australian Open and Roland Garros. The 36-year-old from Manacor reaffirmed that he is a living great and that the only thing stopping him from playing his chances at Wimbledon to the fullest was a tear in his abdominal muscles.

The Iberian has made the decision to skip the Masters 1000 in Montreal since she is not yet in top shape. Rafa’s participation in the Cincinnati tournament and whether he’ll head straight to the US Open later this month are both still up in the air.

Djokovic, who won the Championships for the seventh time in his career, was the subject of a different speech. Due to his decision to forego receiving a coronavirus vaccination, the Serbian champion runs the possibility of being unable to compete in the season’s last major.

The legendary Indian tennis player Vijay Amritraj in-depth studied the opinions of Nadal and Djokovic in an exclusive interview with the “Essentially Sports” portal.

Amritraj on Djokovic and Nadal

The tennis Hall of Famer spoke candidly on the growth of youthful talent during an exclusive interview with Essentially Sports while discussing Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal‘s chances at the US Open this year.

It would be intriguing to watch the US Open, he said, because Djokovic is currently unable to compete. It will also be interesting to see if Nadal will be healthy and strong enough to compete after suffering a stomach injury. He continued, “So, we’ll wait and see also whether Federer decides to make a comeback and thinks he can come back and play on the hard courts in the US Open,” while speaking about Federer‘s comeback.

We’re still waiting for that crucial underdog or challenger to win the Grand Slam this year, though. Early in the 2022 season, news of Novak Djokovic‘s deportation from Australia earlier this year dominated the news.

“Tahlia McGrath is a representative of the nation that made sure Novak Djokovic was deported and barred from competing at the Australian Open because he was not immunized and was considered a threat. However, it was OK to let her play with COVID when it came to one of their own?” Tweets from Singh.
