The Spaniard celebrated his 100th tour level match by winning against the German veteran Philipp Kohlschreiber.
The experienced German started well but Nadal turned the tables to prevail 0-6 6-2 6-3. The Spaniard’s comeback secured his 822nd victory. Not only that but the 30-year-old has joined a special club 1000 consisting of just 11 players who have played at least 1,000 matches. Jimmy Connors is No. 1 with 1535 matches.
“One thousand matches is a lot of matches. Obviously that’s good news because that says I am having a long career,” said Nadal.
“During a lot of years, I heard that I’m going to have a short career, so it’s something important for me.
