Fans haven’t forgotten the selfie in which he unknowingly made a mistake and called the US Capital as the ‘White House’. It was a funny moment for some fans as they joked that Rafa is so new to Washington that he can’t even differentiate between the White House and the US Capitol.

Since the Rogers Cup didn’t take place in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, Rafael Nadal is still the defending champion at the Masters 1000 tournament. He defeated Daniil Medvedev in straight sets in the finals in 2019 to clinch the title.

Interestingly, the Spaniard has won the title on five occasions. If he succeeds at the Rogers Cup 2021, he’ll level tennis legend, Ivan Lendl, for the most number of Canadian Open titles. With no Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer playing this year, his chances of winning the title seem quite high.
