0 minutes, 28 seconds Read

Defending champion Rafael Nadal defeated a player 15 years his junior to claim a record 23rd Grand Slam title at the Australian Open on Monday.

The Spanish top seed showed some of his trademark hammer forehands but also made 46 unforced errors before losing 7-5, 2-6, 6-4, 6-1 to Britain’s Jack Draper in sweltering heat at Rod Laver Arena.

It advanced them into the second round for the 17th time and extended their win–loss record at Melbourne Park to 77–15.

He will next play Mackenzie McDonald, who defeated fellow American Brandon Nakashima in a five-set thriller.
