'The superiority of Rafael Nadal is...', says ATP star

“Rafael Nadal’s superiority is …” says the ATP star

Spanish champion Rafael Nadal is enjoying an extraordinary 2022. Despite the constant physical issues that have plagued the Mallorcan, Rafa made a great comeback earlier in the year, winning the Australian Open after a long absence, becoming the first tennis player in history to do so won at least 21 Grand Slam titles.

Rafa then returned to Roland Garros and despite a not-exceptional clay-court season, he defeated the competition to win in Paris, taking revenge on Serbian champion Novak Djokovic, who had beaten him the previous year. Nadal reached twenty-two Grand Slam titles and for a few days he harbored hopes of winning all four Grand Slam titles.

However, due to physical problems, Rafa had to retire again. In the quarter-final match against Taylor Fritz, Rafa tore about 7mm in the abdomen but still ended the match with a surprising victory.

Only then did Rafa decide to withdraw from the tournament, paving the way for Nick Kyrgios to reach the final. Nadal is currently out of action with physical issues but his aim is certainly to get back in shape ahead of the US Open, the final big goal of his season.

The probability that Novak Djokovic will not take part in the event is very high (since the Serb is not vaccinated against Covid-19) and Rafa therefore has another great opportunity to extend his lead in the Slam rankings over his great and eternal rivals to expand

, Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer. According to Chilean newspaper La Tercera, Rafa Nadal is set to play a show in Chile on November 24-25 where he meets host Alejandro Tabilo.

Rafa Nadal has resumed training

Feliciano Lopez has once again expressed his admiration for compatriot Rafael Nadal after the latter beat Taylor Fritz with a ruptured stomach in the fifth set’s super tie-break before finally losing his half to Nick Kyrgios.

“For a long time we didn’t have the words to describe what Rafa is doing. You have to take advantage of it, because when a 36-year-old player can win two Grand Slams under the circumstances in which he managed to do it, it’s very difficult to explain in words what he’s doing.

The clearest proof of this is that there are very few players who can beat him when he’s healthy. The superiority of Rafa and Djokovic over the other players is very big,” emphasized the 40-year-old Spaniard on the Radio Marca microphone.
