Often we come across the phrase,” records are meant to be broken”. A record is vulnerable irrespective of its magnitude. It gets broken by someone or the other. However, there are some records that exist without the danger of being broken. These records are here for a long time and will continue to remain unharmed. Spanish tennis professional Rafael Nadal has set a record that is impossible to break believes none other than Andy Murray.
In the recently included French Open 2020, Rafael Nadal went on to win his 13th French Open title. Defeating Novak Djokovic in straight sets, he won his 100th match in the Roland Garros as well. While some dream of winning a handful of Grand Slams, Nadal won his 13 Slams out of 20 in Paris.
Former Wimbledon champion Andy Murray believes that it is impossible to break the Spaniard’s record. Breaking the record is far from reality. It’ll be news in itself if someone even comes close to the figures.
“Amazing achievement. I think it is one of the best records in sport, maybe the best. I don’t think it will ever be repeated and I actually don’t think anyone will get close”, Murray stated.
Tennis legend Pete Sampras won a total of 14 Grand Slam titles in his career. Rafa is one short of equalling his Grand Slam tally that too at a single venue. Murray brings this comparison to state that Nadal is invincible in the French Open and his records speak of it.
“He is one short of winning the same amount of Grand Slams as Sampras – just at one tournament. It’s incredible.”
Andy Murray won three Grand Slams and even held the top spot in the ATP rankings. However, he’s far away from the good old days as he recovers from a career-threatening hip injury. The Briton continues to train to be back in form. He’s shown signs of progress, however, it will take time for him to get back in the shape.
After an early French Open 2020 exit, Murray is back on the court. He’ll be up against Fernando Verdasco in the ATP tour in Cologne. He’ll be aiming to fare well in the tournament which will boost his confidence eventually.
