Rafael Nadal has once again captured the headlines with his incredible win at the Australian Open 2022. Last year everyone including Rafa himself was confused about whether he would play at the Happy Slam or not, considering the chronic leg injury he got in the middle of last season which left him off the court for the rest of the year. After that, he was also detected positive for COVID 19 and had to be quarantined.
The Spaniard made his comeback this year at the ATP Melbourne Summer Set tournament and eventually won the tournament by defeating Maxime Cressy in the finals with a score of 7-6, 6-3. At the Australian Open 2022, the player had a long run and finally won the last match and the title by defeating World No.2 Daniil Medvedev in a 5-set match.
The match between Rafa and Daniil was very interesting and when the latter won the first two sets Rafa’s fans lost the hope to see him lift the trophy but to everyone’s amazement, against all odds, he proved his mettle and after 13 years lifted the Australian Open Cup.
