See the 20 match points and celebrations for each of Rafael Nadal’s record-tying grand slam titles

As a major Roger Federer fan, I thought I would be really upset if either Rafael Nadal or Novak Djokovic ever tied or surpassed Fed’s all-time record of 20 grand slam titles.

But it happened on Sunday when Rafa beat Novak to win his 13th French Open and 20th grand slam crown.

As I watched this video compilation of his 20 championship wins and celebrations, I could not help but be inspired and moved by his passion and amazing athletic ability.

He improved to 20-8 in Grand Slam finals. Broken down by Grand Slam that’s 1-4 in Australian Open finals, 13-0 in Roland Garros finals, 2-3 in Wimbledon finals and 4-1 in US Open finals. In most of his finals, he had to beat either Federer or Djokovic to win the trophy.

I’m quite certain men’s tennis will never again have such a all-time great trifecta almost completely dominating for so long. Federer’s slams range from 2003-18, Djokovic’s 2008-20, and Nadal’s 2005-20.

Will any of the big three add to their haul is 2021 or will one of the younger guns like Dominic Thiem, Alexander Zverev, or Stefano Tsitsipas prevail?

    Rafa is so damn good and non threatening. His thrashing of Djokovic was my tennis highlight of 2020. You may have championship skills but being a hero and a champion requires a lot more tha athletic prowess. Djokovic is driven , the Dark lord will return in 2021!
