Rafael Nadal’s return to the OA could mark a turning point in tennis.

According to former world number 2 Alex Corretja, the inevitable return of Rafael Nadal to the final of the Open d’Australie 2022 could be the turning point in the history of tennis. Nadal was back to the wall in this year’s Australia Open final, while Daniil Medvedev won by two sets, had a 3-2 lead in the third set and three consecutive break balls in the service of l’Espagnol.

Led by two sets, 2-3, 0-40, Nadal managed to return to the match and report his 21st Grand Chelem title, a record. Last week, Nadal beat Casper Ruud at Roland-Garros and now has a record 22 Grand Chelem titles, two more than Roger Federer at Novak Djokovic.

“Tournant de 2022, et qui sait, peut-être de l’histoire du tennis”, a tweet Corretja.

Nadal now has the advantage over Djokovic

Last year, Djokovic won three Grand Chelem tournaments to equal Nadal and Federer on the all -time record with 20 major tournaments.

While it looked like Djokovic was about to end with the record in Grand Chelem history, Nadal won the first two Grand Chelems of the season. After winning the Australia Open earlier this year, Nadal admitted it was one of the most moving and special nights of his life.

“It was one of the most exciting matches of my career,” Nadal said at the trophy presentation ceremony. “Sharing the brief with Daniil was an honor.

Irrevocable. To be honest, a month and a half ago, I wasn’t sure I would be able to go back to playing tennis on the circuit. But today I am here in front of you all, with this trophy in front of me.

You are simply unbelievable, thank you very much “Nadal is currently in Spain, where he is undergoing treatment for his foot. He hopes to be able to participate in Wimbledon, but his participation is more than guaranteed.
