The 2013 Rafael Nadal tennis season officially began on February 5 with the ATP Tournament in Viña del Mar in Chile. He lost in the final, but rebounded with victories at São Paulo and Acapulco. He then won the first Masters 1000 event of the year at Indian Wells. Nadal skipped Miami, and finished Runner up to Novak Djokovic at Monte-Carlo. He followed that with victories at Barcelona, Madrid, and then Rome. At the French Open, he defeated Djokovic in an epic semifinal that went to 9–7 in the fifth set, before thrashing David Ferrer to win his 8th Roland Garros crown. He was then stunned by Steve Darcis in the first round of Wimbledon. Limping in the final set, many people thought his season was over. But a strong summer saw Nadal win Montreal, Cincinnati, and then the U.S. Open (def. Djokovic), thus clinching the Emirates Airlines U.S. Open Series. This granted him 3.6 million US Dollars in prize money, the most money earned by a tennis player at a single tournament. A few days after the U.S. Open Final, he flew to Madrid to help Spain secure their World Group Playoff spot for 2014, with a victory against Sergiy Stakhovsky. He also scored a victory in doubles with Marc Lopez. These victories gave him a 75–7 (91.46%) record in singles, and 6–1 (85.71%) record in doubles in 2013.

Year summary[edit]

South American clay court season[edit]

Following 222 days injured, Nadal returned on the tennis court on February 5 at the Chile Open. He played both single and double-events and reached the final in both tournaments.[1] At the double-event he partnered up with the Argentine Juan Mónaco.

The next event for Nadal was the Brasil Open in São Paulo. He played again both single and double events, in which he partnered up with David Nalbandian who also was his opponent in the final of the single event. Nadal managed to overcome Nalbandian to win his first title in 2013.[2]

Two weeks later Nadal played the Mexico Open in Acapulco where he managed to beat David Ferrer in the final to win his second title in a row in 2013.[3] Following the Golden Swing Nadal confirmed his participation for the hardcourt event BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells in the USA taking place from March 4 to March 18.

Indian Wells[edit]

In Indian Wells Nadal received a Bye in the first round. In the second round he faced Ryan Harrison and managed to beat him in straight sets. Nadal was drawn to face Leonardo Mayer next, but Mayer withdrew from the tournament due to an injury. Nadal's next opponent was Ernests Gulbis who was on a thirteen match winning streak before Nadal defeated him in three tight sets to reach the quarterfinals where he played against his long-time rival Roger Federer. Nadal was able to overcome Federer in two sets. In the semifinals he played the World No. 6 Tomáš Berdych and managed again to win in two sets, which helped him to reach the final for the fourth time in his career. His opponent was Juan Martín del Potro who had previously beaten world No. 1 Novak Djokovic in the semifinals. Nadal defeated del Potro in three sets, winning his record breaking twenty-second ATP Masters 1000 event and his third Indian Wells title.[4][5] Nadal subsequently withdrew from the Sony Ericsson Open in Miami in order to rest and prepare for the clay court season.

European Clay Court Season[edit]

At Monte-Carlo Nadal reached his ninth straight final but lost in straight sets to Djokovic.[6][7] He won in Barcelona in straight sets and then won the Madrid title for a record-breaking 23rd Masters 1000 title, before extending the record to 24 with three top 6 wins in a row against Ferrer, Berdych, and then Federer in an easy two set victory at the 2013 Rome Masters.[8][9][10] Nadal capped off his streak with a ninth straight final this year at the 2013 French Open, defeating Djokovic in an epic match that finished 9–7 in the fifth set. Nadal won the first set and led in the second by a break, but Djokovic then took four straight games to win the set. Nadal responded by dominating the third and led twice by a break in the fourth, but Djokovic broke back on both occasions. As a result Nadal failed to serve out the match and faltered in the subsequent tiebreak. The momentum seemed to be with Djokovic, who broke at the beginning of the fifth and led 4–2 before Nadal made an impressive comeback. The match time was 4:37. In the final Nadal stopped an in-form Ferrer to take a record eighth title.[11][12]

Grass Court Season[edit]

Nadal withdrew from Halle and played at Wimbledon. For the first time in his career, he lost a first round match at a Major, losing in straight sets to lower-ranked Steve Darcis of Belgium.

American Hard Court Season[edit]

Nadal took a seven-week break after Wimbledon, but recovered his form in Montreal, defeating dangerous server Jerzy Janowicz and putting up a strong performance to upset No.1 Djokovic on hard courts during the semifinal. He defeated Milos Raonic in the final in straight sets to win his third title in Montreal and his 25th masters title. Nadal won his 26th ATP Masters 1000 in Cincinnati Masters on Sunday 18 August.[13] Nadal won his 13th Major at the 2013 US Open against No.1 Djokovic in four sets.

Asian Fall & Indoor Hard Court Season[edit]

At the China Open Nadal returned to the No.1 ranking by reaching the final. He had a noteworthy comeback in the quarter-finals against Fabio Fognini, where he fought back from a set and break down to secure the victory. In the final he lost to Djokovic in two sets. Nadal was defeated at the Shanghai Masters by del Potro in the semi-finals. Nadal's final tournament of the year before the World Tour Finals was at the Paris Masters. In Paris, Nadal reached the semifinals where he was defeated by compatriot David Ferrer for the first time in their last 10 head-to-head meeting. At the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals Nadal was unbeaten (3–0) in round robin play and by winning his first 2 matches sealed the Year End ATP World No. 1 Ranking in the process. In the semifinals Nadal faced long time rival Roger Federer and recorded his first indoor win against the Swiss at the ATP World Tour Finals in straight sets. In the final he faced Novak Djokovic but lost in straight sets.
