Famous tennis player Roger Federer sent a congratulatory message Rafael Nadal after he claimed his 21st Grand Slam win at the Australian Open champion Rafael Nadal.

Nadal produced an awe-inspiring comeback in the trophy-decider on Sunday, recovering from losing the first two sets to beat Daniil Medvedev in a thriller.

The Melbourne match went on for almost five-and-a-half hours as the Spaniard refused to give up and gave his all to eventually secure a 2-6, 6-7, 6-4, 6-4, 7-5 victory.

The man from Mallorca’s win was made even more incredible by the fact it comes just a few months after he hinted at retirement as he recovered from a painful foot injury.

Federer, whose total of 20 Grand Slam titles was eclipsed as a result of Nadal’s victory, jokingly referenced those talks of retirement as he congratulated his great rival.

“What a match!” he wrote in a public message on his Instagram story.”To my friend and great rival @RafaelNadal. Heartfelt congratulations on becoming the first man to win 21 Grand Slam singles titles.

“A few months ago we were joking about both being on crutches. Amazing. Never underestimate a great champion.
