Sports fraternity is all about Rafael Nadal, from Roger Federer to Sachin Tendulkar, Real Madrid & many more

Sports fraternity can’t stop celebrating the 21st Grand Slam record win by Rafael Nadal. Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Sachin Tendulkar, Real Madrid and many more were quick to write for the Spaniard.

Rafael Nadal has created history by winning the record of 21st Grand Slam title at the Australian Open tournament defeating World No. 2 Daniil Medvedev in a long-fought thriller that lasts for five hours and 24 minutes.

Being down by two sets against the Russian, Nadal bounced back in the third set and managed to dominate resulting in his favour in the end for his 21st.

The last time Nadal won the Australian Open was in 2009 against Roger Federer the time Swiss ranked World No. 1 and Spaniard 2. The Spaniard has added another trophy to his bag won at Melbourne Park. He has won the most French Open titles (13), four Grand Slams at US Open and twice in Melbourne and Wimbledon.

World No. 5 Nadal has now surpassed Federer and Novak Djokovic with the most Grand Slams in Men’s Singles history and the sports fraternity can’t stop celebrating it.

Spanish football giant club and 13 times UEFA Champions League winners Real Madrid were one of the first to wish the player for the achievement.

Indian cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar enjoyed the win as well and expressed his sentiments via Twitter.

20- times Grand Slam champion Roger Federer wrote for Nadal and his record via Instagram story.

Novak Djokovic, who has the same number of Grand Slams as Federer congratulated Nadal for his record. Djokovic, who is currently World No. 1 was deported from the hosting country following vaccination controversy and his dream to defend his 21 Grand Slam title was shattered. The Serbian congratulated the finalists of the Men and Women’s players.

Former South African cricketer AB de Villiers writes, “Rafa always showed us what sport is all about.”

Real Madrid players conveyed their excitement for Rafa as well along with their manager Carlo Ancelotti.

“How well you represent the sport,” says Los Blancos midfielder Luka Modric.

“Well done, Rafael,” tweeted Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti.

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea says he loves tennis.
