Rafael Nadal has been tipped to have a Netflix movie made based on his recent heroics following his victory at the Australian Open in Melbourne last month.
Nadal secured a record 21st Grand Slam title, as he came from two sets down to defeat world No. 2, and tournament favourite Daniil Medvedev 3-2 in the final.
The Spaniard’s Grand Slam win in Australia was arguably one of his greatest, after doubts that he would even compete in the event were cast just weeks before the tournament took place.
The win also came off the back of a tough year on the ATP Tour after being plagued with injury, which even led to murmurs of the 35-year-old potentially retiring from the sport.
In typical Nadal fashion though the roaring Spaniard came battling back, and capped off his incredible return with a Grand Slam final performance for the ages.

Following his heroics, Monte Carlo Masters tournament director Zeljko Franulovic believes the Australian Open champion’s win is ‘worthy of a Netflix movie’.
He said: “What Rafael Nadal did in Australia, to me, is worthy of a Netflix movie. I’ve never seen that.
“It is something superhuman. Nadal has extraordinary mental strength.
“We must not forget Daniil [Medvedev] who had an equally incredible match. It takes two for [a match like that].”

Franulovic then went on to confirm that Nadal will be in Monte Carlo to compete this year, describing it as ‘perfect preparation’ for the French Open one month later.
He continued: “For me, there is no need to even announce [that Nadal will be playing at the 2022 Monte-Carlo Masters].
“He will be there, it is one of his favourite tournaments and ideal in his preparation for Roland Garros.
“He will come here to win, as always, with his 11 titles”
Despite his remarkable victory in Melbourne Nadal will of course still have to continue to pick and choose his events, due to his history of injury problems.
And ahead of the upcoming Mexican Open and Indian Wells tournament, the Spaniard gave an update on his plans: “I signed up for Acapulco and Indian Wells, but I have to make a decision that are in accordance with what my body allows me to do.
“Acapulco is the closer one, I would like to be there but I have to see what are the perspective.”
