Rafael Nadal wins Australian Open

Melbourne, 30/1: In a big development, Rafael Nadal has claimed a men’s record 21st grand slam title, producing an extraordinary fightback to defeat Daniil Medvedev 2-6, 6-7 (5), 6-4, 6-4, 7-5 in an epic Australian Open final.


With most of the pre-game focus on Nadal’s bid for history, his Russian opponent dominated the first set on Rod Laver Arena. Nadal saved two break points in a long third game but was then broken to love in the fifth, before successive double faults from the Spaniard allowed Medvedev to serve out the set 6-2.
