Australian Open 2022 has just finished! As in previous editions, there was no shortage of great emotions and duels at the highest level.
Rafael Nadal – from hell to heaven!
The grand final of the first Grand Slam tournament of the season provided the audience with an incredible twist. Rafael Nadal was already 0:2 down against Daniil Medvedev, but eventually managed to turn the match in his favour and claim a record 21st Grand Slam title. The Spaniard thus once again made world tennis history.
Ashleigh Barty – the favourite did not disappoint
Ashleigh Barty did not have it easy either. The Australian won the first set against Danielle Collins, but in the second set she lost even 1:5! However, at the right moment Barty got back on track, took advantage of her rival’s inattention and eventually won in a tiebreak.
How did the Poles do?
As far as the Poles are concerned, Iga Świątek was the best. the 20-year-old from Warsaw lost only in the semifinals, when she had to concede to the aforementioned Collins. Hubert Hurkacz, with whom we had high hopes as usual, was disappointed – he dropped out of the tournament in the second round.
