Brady Inspired By Nadal, One Of TIME's 100 Most Influential People Of 2022
Rafael Nadal earned more than just a first-round win at Roland Garros on Monday. The Spaniard was also named to the TIME 100 Most Influential People of 2022 list as part of the ‘Icons’ group, which also includes singers Adele and Mary J. Blige, actor Keanu Reeves and WTA player Peng Shuai.
Legendary NFL quarterback Tom Brady wrote about Nadal for TIME, praising the 35-year-old’s “mental and physical toughness” as well as his focus.
“I admire athletes who push themselves to the limit, and I’m absolutely inspired every time Rafa takes the court,” Brady wrote. “There’s something to be learned from watching his determination, his strategy, everything that it takes for him to never take any moment for granted. He’s forever going to be remembered as one of the very best athletes in all of sports.”
