Fans eagerly await Rafael Nadal’s return

While Rafael Nadal seems to enjoy life away from tennis, fans are yet to recover from his exit at the French Open 2021. Watching in disbelief, fans witnessed the king of clay get defeated to the World No. 1, Novak Djokovic, in the semi-finals of the Roland Garros.

Novak won the tournament and headed to the 2021 Wimbledon Championship, while Nadal withdrew from both the Wimbledon Championship and the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Rafael Nadal became an instant favorite in the US after his emphatic win in the 2019 season of the competition. However, a certain Daniil Medvedev made it almost impossible for Nadal to win his 4th US Open title.

In a thrilling contest, Nadal won the first two sets and was ready to walk away with the trophy. However, Daniil Medvedev arose from the dead and won the next 2 sets on the bounce.

Fans remained stunned as they witnessed the two battle it out. It was Nadal who eventually got the better of Medvedev as the scoreline ended 7–5, 6–3, 5–7, 4–6, 6–4. Safe to say, fans will eagerly await to see him in action once again, as he begins his journey to the US Open.

As 1/3 of the ‘Big 3’, Rafael Nadal has dominated world tennis for more than a decade now. Throughout his career, he’s won 20 Grand Slam titles; a feat only his fellow ‘G.O.A.T’s have achieved.

However, fans speculate if his friendly return to the US Open is the last time they will see the Spaniard in action. In his last outing, Nadal lacked his agility and sharpness, his greatest attributes once upon a time.
