Nadal becomes the only tennis player with 21 Grand Slam
Rafa Nadal has made history again. The one from Manacor came back two sets to Medvedev and becomes the best tennis player of all time. The Russian started by winning the final of the Australian Open 2-6 and 6-7 (5), but Nadal managed to level the match, after taking the next two sets: 6-4 and 6-4.
The final was decided in the last and fifth set, after almost five and a half hours of play. A 7-5 for the Balearic who, at 35 years old, lifted the Australian trophy for the second time and breaks the historic tie with Djokovic and Federer. He adds 21 ‘Grand Slam’, one more than the Serbian and the Swiss.
