TOI Poll: Nadal the favourite to finish with most Grand Slam titles

There was a time when many questions were asked about Rafael Nadal‘s longevity. Would he be able to sustain his extremely physical brand of tennis to challenge someone like Roger Federer as far as the Grand Slam titles count is concerned.
The Spaniard seems to have silenced those critics completely after winning his 20th Grand Slam title, which has made him equal Federer’s all time record. The 39 year old Federer last won a Grand Slam at the 2018 Australian Open.
