Rafael Nadal's lucky 13

With the new year (5th Jan 09) Rafael Nadal will be ranked 13th in the all-time list for most weeks at NUMBER ONE (21 weeks):

– surpassing Mats Wilander with 20 weeks
– Nadal's next milestone will be Ilie Nastase with 40 weeks and Gustavo Kuerten with 43 weeks.
– he's already ahead of P Rafter, C Moya, T Muster, Y Kafelnikov, M Rios, JC Ferrero, J Newcombe, M Safin, B Becker, and A Roddick

Good luck Nadal. This is already some achievement.

Re: Rafael Nadal's lucky 13

Nadal also holds the achievement for the most amount of weeks in which he's ruined the sport, 200 odd.

Re: Rafael Nadal's lucky 13

Is there a list for # of weeks at 1 and 2 combined? Must be a good chance he takes that record at least.

Don't worry. He will do it being just number 1. Pete is some 265 weeks ahead. We must be patient.

I sense some resistance but rafa's got too much personality. I think it's only a matter of time before rafa wins everyone over.

Re: Rafael Nadal's lucky 13

Rafa is AWESOME!
I would love him to be at the top for a long time, but I think it's up to him and how he takes care of his body to last that long on the rankings
his injuries are right now his biggest foe

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos

did you read the new uncle toni article? IIRC He agrees with you Mrs Fedex, he does not believe that rafa will play at 30.

Rafa is going to evolve into a Serve & Volleyer as he gets older. He'll be fine.

Re: Rafael Nadal's lucky 13

Rafa a S&V? I can't see it!

the whole thing that makes him so special is his speed and his power, it's like Roddick losing his big service or Roger moonballing

Toni knows Rafa's body won't hold much longer unless he learns to curb himself a little and play less matches and stuff, Rafa has the tendency to give 150% all the time and that takes a huge toll on the body
