Rafael Nadal told he can reach 25 Grand Slams as he looks to take back French Open title

And Navratilova was also impressed by the 10-time Rome champion’s ability to keep coming back from injury, as she said: “He’s got injuries, but he always comes back, with a broken rib, and he’s back, he’s Superman, he should be wearing a cape, he seems resilient.”

The 167-time singles title winner also branded him a “great role model” for his latest conqueror Alcaraz, as the teenager has won two Masters 1000 titles since losing to his compatriot in Indian Wells and broken the top 10. “I think Nadal does a lot for young people. He never thinks anything is lost and that’s important for the stars of the future so they can establish themselves,” she added.
