Burger King decided to use Rafa’s brutal performance and they turned it into a clever pun to troll their competitor, McDonald’s. On Twitter, the advertising team wrote, “@RafaelNadal, you’re probably still hungry”

As clever as Burger King was with their marketing, Rafa is going to be hungry no matter how burgers he eats. This is because he is chasing one of the biggest records in tennis, that of the most Grand Slams. He is just one Major away from equaling it, but this year will prove to be tricky for him.

Even though the Spaniard has an outstanding record at Roland Garros, he is currently playing under very new conditions. Since the event is being played in September due to the pandemic, the weather is cooler with a chance of rain. These conditions have never suited Rafa and could affect him a lot in the upcoming matches.

Even the draw isn’t too favorable for the 12-time winner. He could potentially face Alexander Zverev in the quarter-finals, and he could also face Dominic Thiem in the semis. Both of them have had amazing runs at the US Open and could pose a huge challenge.

This year’s edition of the event will probably be the toughest one Rafa has played. However, he is a 19-time champion for a reason and could still emerge victorious once more.
