Martha hicks. More replies 2 down. Alan Clarke. Nadal has that "if you want to win, you have to find a way to beat me" quality.
I was lucky to see him win in Monaco against Novak ten years ago and at the crucial moment Rafa stood tall and invited the challenge, coolest moment I have ever seen.
They won't last forever, but these guys are the stuff of legends. Who said the King of Clay can't play indoors? Certainly not me! Great win for Rafa.
