Rafa reigns in Rome

Rafael Nadal soaked up the world of confidence ahead of his French Open endeavours after downing his World No. 1 adversary Novak Djokovic 7-5 6-3   in the enthralling Rome Master on Monday!

The colossal and tightly contested match bore witness to both stalwarts refusing to open up in a pain-staking 76 minute opener before a lack-lustered approach from the Serbian, spear-headed by a determined Spaniard became the factor on the day as frustration got the best of the World no. 1

Six-times French Open champion Nadal’s deserved victory saw his return to the No. 2 rank following his drop to third on the overall ATP rankings last week.

With the French Open and Wimbledon looming, Nadal has also regained his old supremacy over the man who took his No 1 ranking last year after beating him in seven consecutive finals setting up this year’s Roland Garros to be one of the most exhilarating tournaments in recent years should these two kingpin’s meet up!

    Reblogged this on kpalamittam8 and commented:
    At the start of the year every single tennis fan was criticizing and mocking the fact that Novak Djokovic beat Rafael Nadal in not one but SIX straight finals during the 2011 calender year.

    However, despite losing to Djokovic in a marathon/legendary Australian Open final at the start of 2012, the King of Clay has found his feet once more. With the French Open merely days away his wins against Djokovic in Monte Carlo and Rome recently not only serve up as ‘SWEET REVENGE’ but also become an extra motivation for Nadal to defend his crown in Paris and win his seventh French Open title
