The second suspense of tennis in the new season: Can Nadal catch up with Federer?
Nadal is expected to catch up with Federer’s Grand Slam record.Picture / Sports French Open winning streak last year. After the US Open, the number of Nadal Grand Slams is only one step away from Federer, and the GOAT (best in history) battle resurrected.Without major surprises, Nadal is likely to tie Federer next year.Three weeks later, the annual Grand Slam reorganization of Melbourne opened, but the Australian Open has never been a blessing for Nadal.Of the 19 Spanish Grand Slams, only one came from Melbourne, and it was still far away in 2009.However, Nadal has gradually improved his style of play over the past few years, and his hard ground strength should not be underestimated.In the past three years, Nadal has won two US Open titles and two Australian Open finals. Such a performance has never been seen before.Even if he can’t win the Australian Open, Nadal will most likely tie Federer after the French Open.In the past 15 times he has played in the French Open. Nadal has won 12 championships. Roland Garros can be called his own back garden.Nadal is the undisputed king of clay.Before the picture / sports, the outside always thought that Nadal’s play was very consumable to the body. Not many people were optimistic that he could have a healthy and lasting career, but the Spaniard is about to start his 18th season.Even the new season can’t be surpassed, considering that Nadal is 5 years younger than Federer, it is only a matter of time before the Swiss can be surpassed.Federer has repeatedly stated that the competition with Nadal is incredible, they make each other better.Roig, a member of the Nadal team, also said, “If Nadal stops fighting, Federer may have retired long ago.”At present, Federer, Nadal and Djokovic have 20, 19 and 16 Grand Slams in sequence.No one knows how this ranking will change after the end of the 2020 season.On this topic, Federer has also been involved in South American exhibition games, “I can’t stop them, I can only control what I can control.I was very happy and proud when I surpassed Sampras (14 Grand Slams).If they can also break the record, they should also be very happy.Let’s see what they will do in the future and how long they can play, because they are incredibly good players.”Sauna, Ye Wang Sun Haiguang editor Zhang Yunfeng proofread Zhang Yanjun
