What a comeback run for Rafael Nadal. In his first month of tennis after a seven month rehab, Nadal won three titles in four events culminating with his impressive Indian Wells title yesterday.
The results also came with a hearty helping of ATP Rankings. The former No. 1 is now No. 4 in the current ATP Rankings, but in terms of just 2013 points he’s already second! Nadal’s 1,900 points he’s accrued thus far trails only Novak Djokovic’s 2,900.
By skipping Miami, Nadal will lose ground to his rivals but if history repeats and his form continues to improve, there’s a chance Nadal will be the No. 1 in the 2013 points standings when the French Open begins in just over two months.
Nadal is 17-1 in the year and his three ATP titles is best on tour.
1 Djokovic 2,900
2 Nadal 1,900
3 Ferrer 1,770
4 Murray 1,630
5 Del Potro 1,415
6 Berdych 1,370
7 Federer 1,170
8 Gasquet 855
