Former F1 world champion Nico Rosberg congratulates Rafael Nadal

Former F1 world champion Nico Rosberg took to social media to congratulate Rafael Nadal on the achievement. Before the start of the Australian Open, Rosberg had trained with Nadal and wished him luck for the tournament.

“Good internship, @Rafael Nadal. Good luck for the #AustralianOpen…crossed fingers!” wrote Nico wishing Nadal.

Fans quickly took to the tweet and mocked him for cursing Nadal’s chances of victory. The German driver is famous for having given his predictions before the events and for having bewitched his choices. He had previously shown his support and mentioned that Charles Leclerc would win the Monaco Grand Prix in 2021.

The Ferrari driver did not even start the race after his pole position. He showed his cursing power again when he predicted that Germany would beat England at Euro 2020. England football team beat Rosberg’s homeland for the first time in a tournament internationally the next day.

Nico was therefore more than relieved when Rafa managed to win his 21st Grand Slam. Is my jinx career over…?! After jinxing Leclerc in Monaco and the German national football team at the Euros, I’m very happy that my ‘Good Luck’ for Rafa turned out well this time around…” noted Rosberg.
