Rafa Nadal is looking to reach his 14th final in 16th tournament this year (10-3 in finals) and his first indoor final since the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals in London in 2010 (l. to Federer). He has won 15 in a row vs. his fellow countrymen since losing to Verdasco in Madrid in May 2012. Rafa is getting closer to clinching year-end No. 1 in the Emirates ATP Rankings. He will finish No. 1 for the first time since 2010 if he has any result that is equal or better than Djokovic OR the Serb loses in the final OR Rafa wins the title.
