No. 13 For Nadal!!

Congrats Rafa!!

20th Grand Slam Title!!

As Nadal has leveled Federer's incredible record of most Grand Slam titles, it will be interesting to see who'll come on top by the end of their career. With the Swiss being 39, he's definitely in the fag end of his career and it will be interesting to see  how he'll perform after coming back from injury. On the other hand, Nadal, 34, has a lot of Tennis left in him and he'll be raring to add many more feathers to his already illustrious crown. One shouldn't about Djokovic who has 17 titles in his kitty and the Serbian star will be raring to redeem himself.
