TENNIS- Spanish tennis coach Emilio Sanchez Vicario is all praise for Rafael Nadal and claims he has a real chance to break all the records.

Spaniard world number two Nadal defeated Swiss great Roger Federer in straight sets to claim a record 12th French Open title on Sunday and is just two titles away from Federer’s all time record of 20 Grand Slams.

Vicario said, “What Rafa is achieving is so complicated that finding adjectives is tough.

“12 French Opens is unthinkable for any player. Nadal is seeking wins and, except on grass, where Federer is the best, I think he has more chances. I think he has many chances to break all the records."

Vicario also said he would like emerging players like Stefanos Tsitsipas, Alexander Zverev and Dominic Thiem to reach the same level as Federer, Nadal and Novak Djokovic.
