This year in men’s tennis is being one of the most competitive ones in a very long time. We no long have one player or two dominating the circuit and taking home most of the trophies; there are at least 8 or 9 players that are fighting for very single tournament, and have high chances of winning them. Anyone can beat anyone. Or that’s what it seemed like before clay season started. We are back to the hot days, red clay on the socks of the players, incredibly long rallies, never-ending matches… and if there is a person that loves all this, that’s Rafael Nadal. He hadn’t had a good ending of 2009 or start of 2010, but the sight of the red clay seems to recharge his batteries. Three weeks ago he won in Montecarlo (6th year in a row), he decided to not play the Godo Open in Barcelona because of some knee problems, and came back stronger than ever to bite the trophy again in Rome. Nobody has beaten him yet, and I can say it will be hard that anyone will, if his physical problems don’t prevent him from playing his best tennis.
