Rafael Nadal, The Comeback King

September 10, 2013

Ayear ago, Rafa Nadal watched Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic duke it out for the US Open title, while he was on a seven-month battle to overcome a potential career-ending knee injury. Last night, in winning his 13th Grand Slam title, he proved again that he is back - and playing better tennis than ever. Since he rejoined the Tour in February Nadal has reached the finals in 12 of his 13 tournaments, winning 10 of them. It is testament to the fighting spirit and determination he is renowned for. And it is a remarkable achievement in a career already so full of accomplishments.
