MEET RAFA NADAL
Rafael Nadal is one of the best players in history under pressure. He raises his level under pressure – when it is time for heroics and there is no room for hesitation. In that context his success percentages increase compared to the rest, making the difference that has allowed him to be world number 1 at the end of the season five times throughout his long career (2008, 2010, 2013, 2017, 2019), topping the rankings for a total of 209 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 84 titles, 19 of them Grand Slams, as well as a gold medal from the Beijing Olympics and including 35 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 and the Semi Finals in Indian Wells in 2019. This will be Rafa’s third time playing TB10.
‘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
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 (60.8%), matches against top 10s (65%), deciding tie breaks (52.8%).
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.
