It seems that 2010 is gradually becoming the year of Rafael Nadal. Yesterday, the new rankings of ATP were published and Nadal was at the top with 10745 points. Novak Djokovic is in the second position with 6,905 points.
The difference between these two players is quite a lot and if Nadal does not lose his form suddenly then there is a strong possibility that he would end the year as the top ranked player.
In ATP ranking, now, at the third position is Roger Federer with 6,885 points. So, Federer is not that far from Djokovic but the Swiss player will have some catching up to do if he wants to reach Nadal in near future.
US Open 2010 will be a real test for Nadal as he has never won the event. He has even never played in the final of this tournament.
In the past, often, it was said that Nadal was mainly The King of Clay and he was not that good for other kind of surfaces. His main success has come from French Open. However, by winning this year’s
Wimbledon, the Spanish player has shown that he is catching up in other surfaces too.
Thus, it is time for Nadal to reply his critics in a very good way by wining the title of US Open Tennis 2010.
