Rafael Nadal amazed us all with his comeback this year, going from a shaky future to winning 10 tournaments, including 2 Grand Slams and 5 Masters 1000s.
Rafa was the first man to have at least 35 victories on two different surfaces, hard court and clay, in one season. He went from No. 5 to No. 1, finishing the year at No.1. And he did this while missing the first month of the season, including the Australian Open, exiting early at Wimbledon, and withdrawing from Miami, Halle and Basel. What an incredible achievement.
Throughout all this, Rafa has never changed. He remains the family man, shy and humble, always respectful of his opponents. Thank you Rafa, for giving us so much to be proud of.
