Rafa is World's Numero Uno Once More!

Rafael Nadal during his pre-tournament conference at Wimbledon 2010.


Been seriously following the ATP Tour lately ( from Miami Open to Queen's )...Rafa dropped to as low as # 4 in the world rankings, trailing Murray, Djokovic and the greatest of all time (GOAT) Roger Federer since his last year's slump due to injuries and domestic problem.

Boy do I love an underdog and a comeback story! When Rafa ceded the # 1 ranking to Roger in July last year, everyone dismissed the Spaniard's reign as done. It's over.

Not so fast, amigo! After a commendable showing in earlier tournaments this year following his recovery from injuries, Nadal started the clay court season like an insatiable beast. He won his 6th Monte Carlo title, then his 5th Rome Masters and bludgeoned Federer in the finals to claim his 5th Madrid Masters - not wincing a bit in reasserting his newfound dominance.

And, in what awestricken people would later claim a "Clay Slam", he reaffirmed his back-to-form performance by winning the last and the most important title to end the terre rouge season - the French Open 2010. His fifth Roland Garros in 6 years. ( Insert a fist pump here! :) )

With that win, he reclaims the # 1 ranking from his archrival Federer and has subsequently made tennis a lot more interesting again.

Here's hoping to a Career Slam! Vamos Rafa! :))
