Outstanding Greatness, That’s Why Before NBA player Pau Gasol took the time to congratulate the tennis superstar Rafael Nadal about his latest achievement. The former LA Lakers major player won consecutive championships in 2009 and 2010 and knows a thing or two about winning. Gasol was full of praise for his Spanish compatriot, who had a stellar tennis career.
Nadal has just set a new record with his 21st Grand Slam title after defeating Daniil Medvedev in a fiery match. With this victory, he became the only player in tennis history to have 21 Grand Slam titles. Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer both have 20 Grand Slam titles.
Following the feat, Gasol took to Twitter to celebrate with the record-setting tennis star. Gasol also talks about Nadal’s legacy every day.
“21 Grand Slams, nothing compared to the legacy you expand on. Congratulations, Rafael Nadal!!!”
It’s doubly impressive to see Nadal return from a leg injury that kept him out for the rest of 2021. Although people doubted his fitness level, he showed he still has something. that’s in me.
It was nice to see Gasol extend his hand towards Nadal to show his support. That kind of coming together was fully displayed yesterday when The NBA World Shows Their Support For Tom Brady’s Reported Retirement. Unity in sports is a welcome development, as athletes are more concerned with others outside of their sport.
Pau Gasol had a successful NBA career
In 2001, Pau Gasol was picked third by the Atlanta Hawks in the NBA draft with a 3rd overall pick but his rights were given to the Memphis Grizzlies.
Pau Gasol has been successful in his rookie season, starting in all but three games for the Grizzlies. That season, he averaged 17.6 points, 8.9 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 2.1 tackles, and was awarded Rookie of the Year 2002 for his dazzling form.
A few years later, Gasol ended up with the Lakers, and the rest is history. He developed a great relationship with the legend Kobe Bryant on and off court. He also played a key role in helping the team win two NBA titles during his time in LA.
Gasol did not play for most of the 2019-29 season due to a foot injury, then he soon retired after 18 years of brilliant play.
