Rafael Nadal On Tennis In 2020
Tennis fans are hoping for tennis in 2020 and so is Rafa. But realistically, he does not believe that there will be any tennis in the year 2020. In an interview with El Pais, Rafa said,

“I hope that we will be able to resume competition this year, but I don’t believe it, I am more concerned about the Australian Open 2021 than what will happen this year. I think the year 2020 is almost lost, I hope we can resume next year, I really hope so.”

Rafa believes this because the coronavirus is spreading faster than ever. So fast, that it looks like the world will not see any sporting activity this year. Nevertheless, we all must stay positive and hope that we will see the return of the tennis season in 2020.

While Rafa does not believe there will be any tennis in 2020, there might be some hope. Many countries have invested in a vaccine against the coronavirus and have reported that they are close to developing an effective vaccine.

If an effective vaccine is developed, then there is no reason why we cannot see tennis in 2020. And tennis in 2020 will be the best thing for Rafael Nadal as he is in the race to become the GOAT of tennis. To become the GOAT, he must hold one record – the record for the most Grand Slam titles.

Rafa is very close to beating this record which is currently being held by Roger Federer. Hopefully, the virus will be contained and he will have that opportunity to beat the record in the year 2020.

The coronavirus pandemic impacted the world in many negative ways. To fight against this pandemic, Spanish superstar Rafael Nadal has directed his focus towards relief efforts for those affected by it. This took up a ton of his time, but now, he’s finally found the time to train. Check out what he said about his first day in training.

In an interview with La Voz De Galicia, Nadal revealed he had trained for the first time in a while. He also revealed that he hasn’t been training at his academy and went on to explain why. He said,

“I’ve been able to train in a private house because I’m not sure if I can go to the academy. So I preferred to avoid confusion and go train at a friend’s private country house, which has a lead and left it to me.”

Rafa also talked about some restrictions that were in place because of the pandemic and how things are actually getting better.

“Luckily it seems that little by little we are containing this disaster. Since yesterday we can go for a walk, something so simple that we always take it for granted but we enjoy it again.”

Everyone is feeling the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. People are now stuck in their homes and the worst part is that they have no tennis to keep them entertained. Hopefully, that won’t be the case for much longer since the development of a vaccine is well underway.

If a vaccine is developed, that will mean the return of the ATP Tour soon. This is something Rafael Nadal will definitely be hoping for as he wants to be the GOAT of tennis. To reach this goal, Nadal has to hold one record – the most Grand Slam titles.

Swiss maestro, Roger Federer, currently holds the record with a cool 20 Grand Slam titles. However, Rafa is just one Major away from equaling said record. The Spaniard will desperately want the opportunity to reach this goal this year and, hopefully, he will get it.
