Rafael Nadal leaves World Tour Finals with food for thought

Neil Harman, Tennis Correspondent

He said thanks to the ballgirl who caught the last sweaty towel that he will brandish in this Men’s ATP season, which is rare indeed!

Then Raf Nadal smacked a two handed backhand beyond the lines and headed out of a city that he has preferred this year for its Spanish cuisine more than anything to do with tennis.

======================================

Now there seems to be little doubt that Nadal’s tennis skills have dulled. He has been beaten handily, especially by Djokovich in this late tennis season. It’s the knees that took him away from the game and its his knees that have taken that brutal edge of his strokes. He is not the Raf N of 2 years ago! Sad but true.

But there they are Djokovic, Monfils, Nadal and Roger F competing in year ending matches. And Nadal isnt exactly winniing:

Djokovic defeated Nadal for the second consecutive time to improve his overall record to 6-14 against him. He reached his 10th final of the year. Nadal and Djokovic are among eight players who will compete in the ATP World Tour finals on Nov. 22-29 in London.

This hasnt been much of a year for Raf Nadal. Has he reached a premature end to his so promising ATP mens tennis career

By the time Nadal makes it to #1 in the Tennis World, he will be continuing his series of consecutive wins and he will have won his 32nd or 33rd match.
