Rafael Nadal won the Australian Open 2022 to bag his 21st Grand Slam title with an astonishing comeback win over Daniil Medvedev.

Nike has rolled out a film to celebrate the Spaniard’s record-breaking 21st Grand Slam title. The film is live on its social media channels.

Nike is one of Nadal’s longstanding sponsors and the first to congratulate the legend on his 21st Grand Slam title.

Nike’s official Twitter handle posted a short video, revisiting all of Rafael Nadal’s Grand Slam victories leading up to Sunday’s triumph, which includes his 2015 & 2016 performances where he did not win a single title. Many doubted that it is the end of the road for the tennis legend.

“Today, @rafaelnadal made history by becoming the first male tennis player ever to reach 21 Majors. Rafa has been on a relentless journey to clinch this historic 21st Slam. He now stands alone at the top as the GOAT in the men’s game,” the Twitter post read.

The video ends with a mention of World No. 5’s latest win and a two-word message reading “Advantage, Nadal”. Before the Australian Open 2022 triumph, he was tied at 20 Grand Slam titles with Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer. Now it’s clearly “Advantage Nadal” and everyone will be keenly looking at the next Grand Slam tournaments of 2022 – Wimbledon, French Open and US Open.
