Rafael Nadal won his first Grand Slam title almost 13 years ago. Right now, it looks like the tennis player might be onto winning his second given he keeps up the tempo.
Rafael Nadal may be onto his second Grand Slam title
Since the first serve, Nadal has made a point of showing that he is in to win it. He took on that serve as though it will not get him out of bounce. That is just what he did. While Matteo wasn’t an easy opponent, Nadal made sure he kept his eye on the ball and is now much closer to winning another Grand Slam title in thirteen years.
So, Rafael Nadal did get off onto a good start but it seemed as though this ruffled Matteo’s feathers a little bit as he soon picked the tempo of the game and went on to win the third set after Nadal had won two.
At some points, Rafael Nadal didn’t think he would even make it through to the Australian Open finals. During this time he is completely in awe and ecstatic about going to the finals. Now, things are starting to get a bit more serious as all the winners thus far are immensely competitive and with reason.
Berrettini and Nadal battle it out
For some, it will be their first-ever Australian Open finals so this alone would be something to keep in mind when the players finally compete against one another.
Now, in the intense game between Rafael and Nadal, it looked pretty promising for Nadal from the beginning as he took on Matteo’s serves as if it were nothing. When watching we can see that Matteo has somewhat struggled to keep up with his opponent as hits the ball into the net right before Nadal gets his last point.
It was, I’ll admit, something of a touch-and-go situation and Rafael Nadal dominated the court regardless. Matteo had regained his zest a little too late while Rafael won two sets.
By the end of the match, Rafael Nadal had won four sets in his match with Matteo. As a result, he lands his spot in the Australian Open finals.
