Rafael Nadal Greatest Comeback 2013. The 2013 Rafael Nadal tennis season, regarded as one of the greatest comeback seasons of all time, 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.
In 2012, Rafael Nadal smashed out of Wimbledon in the second round to world number 100 Lukas Rosol. It was one of the greatest bombshells in tennis history. From that minute on, the Spaniard didn’t get his racket for more than seven months.
For the total of Nadal’s excellent vocation, he’s battled with damage, moreover we’re accustomed to seeing different body parts to a great extent held together by duct tape. Be that as it may, no damage undermined his vocation very like tendinitis in his left knee backed in 2012 and mid 2013.
Nadal had a win/loss of 75-7 and a 91.46% winning percentage by the end of the year, which makes 2013 statistically the best year of his career (so far). and was regarded as one of the greatest comeback of all time in tennis’ history by tennis pundits.
He won 10 titles, just one short of his best title-winning year, 2005.
Nadal began his season at number 4 in the world, but throughout the year he battled back up to the summit of men’s tennis, ending 2013 as number 1 in the world for the third time in his career.
Rafael Nadal during the course of his greatest comeback won 10 titles which included 2 Grand Slams, 5 Masters 1000 and 2 ATP 500 series and 1 ATP 250 series.

Returning to World No.1
Rafael Nadal qualified for the ATP World Tour Finals once again, where he had another opportunity to compete for the one title that eluded him.
He wasn’t able to pick up the final trophy of the year, but instead, winning his first two Round Robin matches gave him enough ranking points to finish 2013 as world number one.
It was the match against Stanislas Wawrinka which Rafa won and as a result regained the number 1 position.
Not only was Nadal back to his best, but he was the best in men’s tennis once more. It was a perfect finish to an even more greatest season for Nadal.
THAT’s SOME COMEBACK(Hard Court)
You could add comeback player of the year to this award, given that Nadal had watched the 2012 US Open men’s final from his couch, having withdrawn from the tournament because of that knee.
Some questioned whether he would ever be full strength again, much less compete on a demanding surface like the hard courts.
But Nadal ended the US Open with a 22-0 record on the surface this season. winning 4 Hard court titles.
