After playing many tournaments throughout the season, the best tennis players battle it out at one last event – the ATP Finals. This is a tradition that has been going on for a long time and fans have seen many legends win the title. There have so many champions that it would hard for anyone to recall all of them. However, that didn’t stop Rafael Nadal from trying.

In the video, Rafa was able to name a total of 14 ATP Finals champions in 30 seconds. He was able to beat Novak Djokovic and Stefanos Tsitsipas who got 12 and 13, respectively. Clearly, he can beat both players on the court and even in such challenges.
Rafael Nadal Seeks First ATP Finals’ Title
Rafa named many champions at the ATP Finals but his name wasn’t there! Considering that he has won 86 titles throughout his career, many will be surprised that he hasn’t won the ATP Finals trophy. One of the biggest reasons is that he often gets injured towards the end of the year but that’s not the case in 2020.
Due to the pandemic, the Spaniard got a huge break. He is now playing in perfect health which is definitely an advantage for him. He has clearly made use of it as he is now in the semi-finals of the event and there, he will be facing Daniil Medvedev.
The Russian has been playing some incredible tennis as he beat Djokovic in straight sets. Clearly, Rafa has a huge challenge ahead of him and he knows that. He will be preparing extremely well and hopefully, it will be enough to reach his 3rd final at the ATP Finals.
