Rafael Nadal – Álex Corretja exclusively on the Spaniard’s 2022 Grand Slam victories: “It’s a miracle – only he can do it”

Álex Corretja is also a bit lost for words to explain Rafael Nadal’s first half of 2022.

“He won the first tournament, then the first Grand Slam. Then he got injured again and didn’t have much time to prepare for Roland-Garros. And then in the end he won again. A week or two later I thought: Okay, maybe he needs time to rest, he needs time to recover. And now he’s ready again and wants to play Wimbledon. It’s a miracle,” Corretja said.

The Spaniard is convinced that only his compatriot is capable of delivering like this despite the physical problems.

“Honestly, only Rafa can do that. All the ups and downs that he has had and that he has overcome show how much he wants to keep going. It shows how humble he is,” says Corretja.

Nadal will also show this humility in Wimbledon. “I don’t think he feels like he’s going to win the calendar slam. It’s not in his head. He goes there, trains and prepares for the first round. That’s his focus, the first round is his only goal,” says Corretja.

The 48-year-old is convinced that Nadal will also improve “little by little” in Wimbledon: “He can deal with such situations very well. He knows where he stands and just stays realistic.”
