The current world number two Rafael Nadal has cemented himself as an all-time tennis great. 2019 has seen Nadal put in a solid performance. Reaching the semi-finals in Indian Wells, Monte Carlo, Barcelona and Madrid. Currently ranked world No.2 he has been fighting for the top spot this year, narrowly being defeated by the No.1 Djokovic in the final of the Australian Open. Months later at the Internazionali BNL d’Italia in Rome the pair met again in the finals, Nadal managed to reign victorious sailing to victory against Djokovic. Nadal’s scintillating form rightly has everyone paying attention. With an on-going career of 18 years, his title count stands at 82, with incredible hauls of 11 titles each at Monte-Carlo and Barcelona. Last month saw Nadal secure his 12th title at Roland Garros, in a truly nail biting match against world No. 4 Dominic Thiem. He is by no means a one-surface player, with 59 clay court titles to his name and having won the Australian Open in 2009, Wimbledon in 2008 and 2010, and the US Open in 2010, 2013 and 2017. Furthermore, he has led Spain to three Davis Cup titles in 2004, 2009 and 2011 and owns an all-time record of 24 straight singles and doubles wins in the competition since 2005.
