After Rafael Nadal won his 21st Grand Slam, the media was flooded with articles about the impressive feat, with titles like “Nobody has won 21 Grand Slams in the history of tennis” or “Rafa Nadal becomes the first tennis player to win 21 majors after winning the Australian Open”.
Steffi Graf: 22 Majors.
Serena Williams 23 Majors.
Margaret Court: 24 Majors.
Female success isn’t worth less than male.”
– Daniel Heithorn
