Rafa Nadal has congratulated Novak Djokovic on his Australian Open success.
The Serbian tennis player equaled the Spaniard with 22 grand slam championships after winning his tenth title at the Rod Laver Arena.
“Incredible achievement Nole, congratulations to you and your team! Well deserved, enjoy it Nole!” Nadal posted on Instagram underneath an image of the Serbian.
The Spaniard accompanied the image with another message.
“Congratulations Nole and your team for this great achievement. Enjoy the moment,” he posted.
Djokovic replied with “Thank you Rafa”. Earlier, the other member of the Big Three, Roger Federer, also sent congratulations to Djokovic.
“Incredible effort, again. Congratulations,” wrote the Swiss icon.
Djokovic will now spend a few days in Belgrade before returning to official competition at the Dubai Open 500 on February 27.
It was there he was set to meet Nadal, but the Spaniard’s injury forced him to miss the tournament. As a result, they will not meet until the Monte Carlo Masters 1000.
This is because even if Nadal played before that, he could not meet the new ATP number 1 in the United States because Djokovic has not been vaccinated against the coronavirus and, therefore, cannot play in Indian Wells or Miami.
