Is Nadal Ready?
After Roger Federer's loss today in the Round of 16 at the Cincinnati Masters Tennis Tournament, Rafa Nadal can take the number 1 spot away from Federer for the first time in 4 years. All he has to do is win the title.
Sounds daunting until you realize that Nadal has won the last 5 tournaments he has played in, including Wimbledon and the French Open. While I hate to see Federer's record run at number 1 end, it seems only right for Nadal to be at 1.
Of course, pressure and the likes of Andy Roddick and Novak Djokavic may have something to say about it. Maybe if he gets the number 1 spot he'll quit wearing those stupid cropped pants
