SPANISH TENNIS | RAFAEL NADAL WINS INDIAN WELLS MASTERS 1000

Spanish Sportsman & greatest Spanish Tennis Player in History Rafael Nadal has gained his third Masters 1000 Indian Wells title after defeating Argentine ace Juan Martin Del Potro 6-4, 3 - 6, 6 - 4. The Spaniard in gaining this title jumps up the World Ranking to the N º 4 position after 7 months out recovering from a near career ending problem with his knees.

See-saw stuff with both players at their limit, were perhaps the mental strength of Nadal tipped the difference in the third set in his favour. Nadal came to Indian Wells to test his knees on hard surface & needed an opponent of the class & calibre of Del Potro to benchmark his recovery. The final result was an end to a long suffering road were it was day to day objectives to get back into the circuit, back into form & back into the winning ways.

Rafael Nadal will not not go onto Florida for the 2º Masters 1000 as he wishes to rest his knees & not risk as he puts his mind forward onto the European clay court circuit where he historically has been unbeatable.

This is his 600 victory as a professional, his 52nd title & the player with most Masters 1000 with 22, which puts him ahead Federer (21), Agassi (17) & Djokovic (13).

Spanish Tennis needed Rafa back as did World Tennis. The man has suffered during theses last 7 months & today's victory must be emotional. Rafael will be back in competition in Montecarlo on clay.

Welcome back Champ!
