“I don’t want to put myself in that position again,” “Can happen once. But no, it’s not a philosophy of life that I want to follow.” It’s not about being the best in history. It’s not about the records. It’s about: I like what I do. I like to play tennis. And I like the competition,” Nadal said.” What drives me to keep going is the passion for the game, to live moments that stay inside me forever,” he added, “and play in front of the best crowds in the world and the best stadiums Nadal said after becoming the oldest champion of clay and grand slam title.
In September, Rafael Nadal was on pillars. After pulling out of the U.S. Open and the remainder of his 2021 season, the Spaniard passed surgery for the habitual issue that had agonized his left bottom for times. He’d been sidelined with injuries before — in 2005, he famously won the Madrid Open final with a broken bottom — but this was different. He was 35 now. In June, he’d lost to Novak Djokovic in the quarterfinals of the French Open — the event synonymous with his heritage, where he’d won 13 of his 20 Grand Slams — and also took several months off to recover.
The physio team who first treated him in 2005 had discovered further than just a break. Nadal had Müller- Weiss pattern, a rare and degenerative disfigurement of a small bone in the midfoot. He can keep playing, but will always feel the pain. He could no longer play through the pain as he’d in his immature times. An image of him after the operation — standing on his right leg, the left bandaged and put down behind him — each purely vindicated that, anyhow of gift and tenacity and the topmost of insoles, the nearly two-decade-long period of Nadal was anana and inching toward its close.

Rafael Nadal who was named after 36 years old Djokovic and 19 years old Alcaraz in the Roland-Garros won the title after defeating his fellow teammate Casper rudd in the finals by 6-3, 6-3, 6-0 in the the the three sets finals.
The return of the champion:-
But on 31st January 2022 morning at the Australian Open men’s final, after five and a half hours and five sets, the 6th ranked Nadal surfaced victorious against Russia’s Daniil Medvedev, winning the event for only the second time in his career and becoming the first player in men’s tennis to reach 21 Grand Slam mates titles. Forty-time-old Roger Federer and the ever- centralizing Novak Djokovic remain tied at 20. Djokovic would have contended, but a week-long saga performing from his choice to not vaccinate against Covid- 19, Australia’s rejection of the medical impunity on his visa operation, and two failed attempts to appeal Australia’s decision, kept the nine-time Australian Open from the the the winner out of the event.
Nadal won 12 further French Open mates titles over the coming 15 times. The red complexion at Roland Garros is maybe the tennis world’s most reviled face. It constantly makes players slip as they sprint across the court. It slows the brio of the ball. It favors topspin, with depth. And it drives good players, like Medvedev, to outrage. For Nadal, still, Roland Garros has always been home. He has long been honored as the topmost complexion court player of all time. Yet until now, his mastery of complexion has overshadowed his holistic greatness; for times he has brewed as the runner-up to Federer in the pantheon of the game’s overall greats.
What’s a greatness if not the sight of a 35- time-old outplaying and outwearing an uninjured opponent 10 times his inferior, a bare four months after surgery and four weeks after respiratory illness? What’s his heritage if not the scrupulous, go- a for- fractured approach he has applied to every point, on every face, of his 21 Grand Slam triumphs? What’s radical if not the sustained, brute force of a game in direct distinction to the humble persona who wields it?
Rafael Nadal has not lost the title match of the French Open indeed formerly. Nadal won the title also for the first time in 2005. Since also, in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, Nadal also came the champion of men’s mates also. The French Open is played on a complexion court and for this reason, Nadal is also known as the ‘ King of Clay Court ’. He was just one step down from winning his 22nd Grand Slam title. Nadal defeated 23- time-old Casper Rudla (Casper Rudd). Kasper Rudd defeated Marin Cilic of Croatia in the semi- tests to reach the final. It was Rudy’s first Grand Slam final. Rafael Nadal defeated Casper Rudd 6- 3, 6- 3, 6- 0 in a straight-sets match on complexion court moment. Rafael Nadal won the Australian Open this time, his 21st Grand Slam title. He’d his eye on the alternate crown.
Rafael Nadal is gearing up for London:-
Ivan Lendl and Mats Wilander, truly great complexion (and hard court) players, won Wimbledon. On the wise side, Hall of Fame players like Pete Sampras, John McEnroe, Jimmy Connors, Boris Becker, and Stefan Edberg could fairly figure out the red clay. Bjorn Borg, who won in Paris six times, also won Wimbledon five times — but no way the US or Australian Open. Rod Laver won on-field and complexion and no distrustfulness would have on hard courts had majors been played on them during his career. Laver could have won playing on ice- moaning rink — or any other face.
Nadal passed a procedure in the hunt for an endless cure for his bothering undermost injury. After securing his 22nd Grand Slam title, he decided for medical help and later turned up for a practice session. On Monday, Nadal took his first step toward the field season and entered the practice grounds of the Mallorca Crowns. He’s hoping to edge his chops for the Wimbledon Championship by playing in the ATP 250 event.
As should we all.
