Rafa Roundup: January 30, 2014

ARTICLES:

… Rafael Nadal, the current no. 1 ranked tennis player in the world, has been at the top of the game for almost 10 long years. Since his first Grand Slam victory at his beloved tournament, the French Open, he has never looked back and has gradually transformed his game to become one of the greatest players in the history of the game.

… As Rafael Nadal showed Sunday at the Australian Open, beating Roger Federer in a Grand Slam isn’t all its cracked up to be. As noted by the folks at TennisAbstract.com, the last eight players to defeat Federer at a major all lost their next matches.

… Rafael Nadal doesn’t expect to miss any tournaments as a result of the back injury that contributed to his loss in the Australian Open final. A statement from the world’s top-ranked player says he will have another medical exam on Monday after doctors in Barcelona examined his back following his return from Australia.

… Es maravilloso lo que logró Rafa. Después de estar por más de siete meses fuera del circuito, volvió alcanzando diez títulos y consiguió el número uno del ranking de la ATP. Es un gladiador dentro de la pista, el cual tiene muy claro sus objetivos, es de esas personas que hasta que no alcanza lo que se propone no terminará con ello.

… El número uno, que no puede entrenarse, se tratará con antiinflamatorios y fisioterapia “intensiva”.

… Los minutos en los que Nadal abandonó el partido para tratarse de sus dolores fueron aprovechados por Rochus, comentarista del torneo australiano para Eurosport Francia, para atacar al español: «Cuando volvió del vestuario estaba cojeando. Después, sorprendentemente, podía correr en el tercer y el cuarto set». «Claramente dejó la pista para recibir una inyección», sentenció.

… But don’t underestimate the value of Nadal’s unique talent for winning Roland Garros. Given the demolition of the theory that tennis inevitably and increasingly will be a young man’s game, it isn’t inconceivable that Rafa could win enough titles at Roland Garros alone to wind up with 18 majors.
