MEET RAFA NADAL

Rafael Nadal is one of the best players in history under pressure, when it is time for heroics and there is no room for hesitation. In that context his success percentages increase exceptionally compared to the rest, making the difference that has allowed him to be world number 1 at the end of the season four times throughout his long career, (2008, 2010, 2013 and 2017), topping the rankings for a total of 160 weeks. It is in precisely this situation that Tie Break Tens is played. It is a tournament with no room for error, which the Spaniard will be trying to add to a trophy cabinet that already contains 80 crowns, 17 of them Grand Slams, as well as a gold medal from the Beijing Olympics and including 33 Masters 1000 titles. Relentless since turning professional in 2002, his stunning career, in which he has lifted titles as a teenager, a twenty-something and now into his thirties, will see him attempt to life the Tie Break Tens Indian Wells trophy after reaching the final in Melbourne 2018 before losing to Tomas Berdych, 10-5.

‘It is a great concept and it will no doubt lead to some exciting matches. It is an incredible field and I expect some tough competition which will be great for the American fans and a really entertaining night of high quality tennis.’

TIE BREAK STRENGTHS

COMPOSURE

Few players in the world have withstood pressure as well as Nadal. He dominates all the statistics when mere mortals’ hearts are pounding: tie-breaks (61%), matches against top 10s (65.3%), deciding tie breaks (52.9%).

TIRELESS

Rafa is well known for never giving up on a ball, when most players won’t chase them down. He has shown extraordinary determination to come back from set-backs, returning to the world number 1 spot after long injury lay-offs.

THE COMPLETE PLAYER

Nadal has recently not only modified his serve to keep rallies shorter but he has also added defensive qualities, such as an increasingly aggressive game, more skill at the net and a huge range of options on his serve. He is a fan favourite and much loved around the world.
