Rafael Nadal is capable of beating Roger Federer’s record haul of 17 Grand Slams, former German No 1 Boris Becker said yesterday.
“If you’d asked me that a few years ago, I’d have said ‘no.’ But this year he (Nadal) has returned to his top form and now has 13 titles to his credit,” Becker said.
“He’s 27 and doesn’t intend to stop there. He’s capable of getting more,” added the London-based star.
“Nadal is a great competitor. After all that happened to him last season (a long lay-off due to a left knee injury) to return and have the success he’s had this year in becoming World No 1 again is almost a miracle.”
Becker was talking about Nadal, who has won 10 titles including the French Open and US Open, at an event linked to the German’s participation in the Doha Goals sports forum in Qatar in December.
