How Rafael Nadal’s left hand-right hand combination jolts Paula Badosa’s gameplay

From one of the most successful teenager in the history of ATP tour to turning into the winner of most Grand Slam titles (22) in the history of tennis, Rafael Nadal is a national hero of Spain and he is one of the key players alongside Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic who are commonly known as the big three.

Nadal recently achieved the Roland Garros for a record 14th time and extends his dominance in the clay court after beating Casper Ruud of Norway by 6-3, 6-3, 6-0 in the final in Paris.

When considering Nadal’s injury issues, which reportedly nearly ended his career in late 2021, his achievements this year are even more impressive and despite being 36 years old and visibly in poor physical shape, the Spanish star continues to demonstrate why he is an all-time great, especially after winning the French Open for the 14th time.

What Paula Badosa said about Rafael Nadal? 

On 2022 French Open, Nadal’s female counterpart Paula Badosa also played few good games on the tournament and received praiseworthy speeches from different critics.

After a difficult victory over Slovenia’s Kaja Juvan, Paula advanced to the third round of the French Open and then he signed the camera lens with her left hand after the match, which drew the attention of the on-court interviewer, who questioned which hand she prefers.

Upon hearing the question, Paula excitedly answered, “I am left-handed,” “So I hope I can be a little bit similar to Rafa I hope one day.”

Badosa remarked about her victory over Juvan during her post-match press conference and the Spaniard believes that hard-fought triumphs like these will help her in the long run. 

She again said, “Sometimes I don’t want to complain or be that emotional on court, but sometimes I need it to give everything and to push myself. Yeah, today I think I was back on that competitive spirit, and I’m very happy about that.”
