“It’s unbelievable”, John McEnroe couldn’t believe Rafael Nadal won his 22nd Grand Slam
John Mcenroe was shocked by Rafael Nadal’s performance at Roland Garros this year. In a post-game interview, McEnroe said: “It’s incredible, it took a player – [Pete] Sampras – 35 years to catch Roy Emerson. We thought it would take another 30 years [before the record was broken again], and now it’s one, two, three boys. Most of us thought it was Novak [Djokovic], but then there was this terrible debacle in Australia. I don’t think Novak thought Rafa would go and win [the Australian Open].”
he continued “Djokovic has come [to Roland-Garros] thought ‘I have to catch this guy’ and then Rafa stepped back onto the plate. If anyone comes close, I’ll be upside down and do a whole show – if Eurosport invite me back in 15 years and Casper Ruud has just won his 14th French Open in a row – I’ll be upside down the whole show. “
“It’s never going to happen again in our sport that a man – or woman – is going to win so many of these events, so enjoy it while we can. [Rafa] has given signs that he may no longer play. I don’t know if that’s true, but it sounds conceivable that it will be his last match.” Added McEnroe.
