Nico Almagro has been one of the Spaniards who have been protagonists at Roland Garros in the last two weeks. The Murcian, who retired in April 2019 after almost 16 years in the elite, has contributed decisively to the American Danielle Collins, his pupil, reaching the quarterfinals of the women's team, where only Sofia Kenin, in the end finalist of the tournament, he was able to stop his advance in Paris.

In addition to helping Collins, Almagro also vibrated with Rafa Nadal's performance at Roland Garros. In fact, the Murcian surrendered to the figure of the Balearic with this tweet last Friday after Nadal's victory against Schwartzman in the semifinals. "There are things that a pandemic does not change either ... DON Rafael Nadal again one step away from taking over Paris !!! Instead of giving him the trophy I gave him the Eiffel Tower directly and let him put it in his home garden ( no matter what happens in the final) ", along with the hashtags #brutal #descomunal and # princesaEspañol.

All a premonition of what would end up happening in the final, where Nadal beat Novak Djokovic in three sets to win his thirteenth Roland Garros and take the photo of champion with the Eiffel Tower in the background.

"He will be 65 years old and he will continue to win Roland Garros"

After Nadal's victory in the Roland Garros final, many fans remembered the 'prediction' that Almagro himself made during a match against Nadal in the Roland Garros quarterfinals 2008, where Nadal beat Murcia by a triple 6-1.

After a point that caused Almagro's astonished face, the Murcian was hunted by the tournament cameras saying the following before serving. "He will win Roland Garros 40 years in a row. He will be 65 years old and he will continue to win Roland Garros," Nico Almagro said at the time. A video that has gone viral again after the triumph of Rafa Nadal, who in 2021 will attempt a new assault on what would be his fourteenth title in Paris.
