◼️ The Spanish legend starts his week 168 on Monday at the top of the ranking after moving Roger Federer.
Absent in the circuit since he left in the quarterfinals of the Australian Open against Marin Cilic, Rafael Nadal is given the pleasure of returning to the top of the world ranking. Despite playing his final game in late January, the Spaniard benefited from the elimination of Roger Federer in his debut in Miami, where he defended the 1,000 points of the title.
With a record of 4 victories and 1 loss in 2018, the southpaw of Manacor had threatened to return to the Acapulco ATP 500, but had to give up due to an injury similar to that suffered in the oceanic Slam, in the psoas muscle iliac of his right leg.
Rafa, 31, starts his week 168 on Monday in his career as number 1 in the world. Although he knows that Federer won’t return until June, for the turf tour after getting off the slow court tour, Nadal will have to defend the Monte Carlo and Madrid titles (2,000 units), Barcelona (500), quarterfinals on clay. of Rome (180) and Roland Garros (2,000). In vilo for how it will return on a physical level, it could open a door for one of its persecutors.
