  1. Unbelievable Rafa . Magnificent Rafa . What a player and such brilliance in fighting back. Rafa had a great chance in set 2 to win it ;but Medvedev was awesome and would not yield .a match to remember for life. Wow wow wow wow wow . Just too good.

  2. Been quiet all this time since Sunday….so on a high, savouring all of Rafa’s 21 majors.

    Soooo happy!!!

    Oh, the agony and the ecstasy of sport, of following your hero, of caring for Rafa and what this means to him…

  3. Tooooooo amazing by champion Rafa . What a pulsating finals . Just 2 champions going at each other for 5hours ++++++ . Very high quality match Daniil was phenomenal too. Rafa was out of the world with his shots . incredible match . Will be in my memory for 50 years & more. Awesome . Super congrats to both . Rafa is a genius.

  4. Hi Mr Wonderful tennis player ever. I’m a 94 yr old fan that cried along with you my emotions were as high as yours we all wanted this win as much as you. I worried with Med stsrting out so well and thlinking now you had to win the next 3. No problem you did it. What an exciting match to watch. Can’t wait for Roland Garros now. Stay well and enjoy your time between tournaments. By the way we are both Geminis mine is the 6th. 95 next..

  5. Djokovic first congratuleted Barty and then Rafa. He didn’t know how to write it obviously so his PR team had to think something just that he also mentions Rafa after all the mess he caused Down Under with his visa.

  6. Huge congratulations champ Rafa. You’re an amazing, a legend, a great fighter who’s sooooo passionate about the sports he likes and loves most. โค what an incredible remarkable, unthinkable comeback after 2 sets down. ๐Ÿ‘. Bravo ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ™Œ ๐Ÿ‘Œ ๐Ÿ‘. Luv u to bits โค for making us Rafans happy once again ๐Ÿ˜Š ๐Ÿ˜ƒ . Vamps Rafa.

  7. A well deserve victory for Rafa Nadal…..a strong fighting spirit….
    An example for all…God Bless…

  8. I am truly thankful that I have lived long enough to see Rafa get the praise he deserves..,,,,,,,,..,,,from around the world, He represents everything that sports and humanbeingship are all about. Thank you Rafa, thank you. I am 86 and have been a fan for all your tennis years and to see you do your best at this point is so very gratifying. AGAIN, THANK YOU,,,,CHAMP.

  9. I hope Rafa decides to start a family while he’s on tour. I appreciate his dilemma, but he still has plenty to play for, whilst at the same time he needs to consider his wife. I expect there are a lot of family members around to give support. Maybe I’m being selfish, but those are my thoughts.

    • I also wish Rafa mentions his wife Mery more.. It would be really nice to hear a bit more of acnowledgement for Mery in his speeches.

    • Same in my opinion hรฉ can play and have family at same time hรฉ should play lessen tournaments

      • Maria is fluent in Spanish and Catalan of course and according to her LinkedIn profile has complete professional competency in English. She needs to use that in her capacity as General Director of the FRN. I have heard her speak it while she was in India and on an RN Academy video. She has a charming Spanish accent just like Rafa.

    • For all we know, they may be trying but not be having any luck so far – I hope the media don’t drive him mad about it, because you never know what’s going on. But hopefully there will be a few little Nadals along before long.

    • It is intrusive to comment on Rafa’s personal life.It’s not our business. Rafa and Maria have a private and close relationship. Congratulations would be more appropriate that your intrusive post

      • Rafa has expressed that he wants a family but after he stops touring ~ I don’t blame him he is away from home so much. I Agree that it’s not our concern when & if he starts a family! And by the way Maria is fluent in English..I have heard her talking in some of his videos!

      • Well said E. Howard. i also find it intrusive to comment on Nadal’s, or any person’s private life.

      • Amen. I agree and Iโ€™m sure the real Rafa fans would also agree. The personal comment was extremely inappropriate. A total lack of respect and class.

  10. What a man! What a match What! What a fairytale ending! Back from the brink and he rises like a phoenix from the ashes. Rafa is incredible! Like all true Rafa fans, I’m so proud to be a fan.
    Our champ deserves the worldwide praise for such an amazing feat. Love, love, love it!

  11. Itโ€™s not just the social media platforms but around the world EVERY LANGUAGE AND NEWSPAPER are also praising Rafaโ€™s unbelievable victories #21 and #2

    • Vintage Rafa. He makes us โ€œsufferโ€ every point but never disappoints us. He is, in every way, a true winner in tennis and in life. Itโ€™s been a great ride along with him for 18 exciting years of tennis.
