Rafael Nadal and his Journey to the #5 World Ranking

I first heard about Nadal while working on my advertising project in my sports and social media class. I was impressed with his amazing wins this year in the Barcelona Open and the Monte Carlo Masters and decided to do some outside research on him. I never thought I had discovered such a powerful professional tennis player and proceeded to be amazed by all his accomplishments during his career.

Rafael Nadal is a twenty nine year old Spanish tennis player who plays with his left. He is currently ranked fifth  and is considered one of the best players in the world. Nadal has been playing since he was three and started competing professional at age 15. He stands out with the sheer number of titles he possesses. In the French Open, Monte Carlo Masters, and the Barcelona Open he has 9 titles wins in each. He also won gold at the Beijing Olympics in 2008. He was in Shakira’s music video Gypsy in 2010 and the singer chose him because of his commitment to work.

Nadal is a powerful player that may one day reclaim his #1 ranking, especially with the impressive way he has been player this year!!nadal4
