On 22nd April, 2012, Rafael Nadal defeated Novak Djokovic 6-3, 6-1 in the final of Monte Carlo Masters, 2012 to win Rolex Monte Carlo Open for eight consecutive years from 2005 to 2012.
No other man in the history of Tennis has ever won an ATP 1000 event for eight years in succession.
Here's a poem written by me on Rafael Nadal
Tennis Fans world over with their full spirit,
Will always off their hats to Rafa’s Grit.
Born in the year of Nineteen eighty six,
His determination always puts every one in a fix….
Brought up in the small town of Manacor,
His 1st childhood sport was Soccer.
But with his hard work & determination,
& with Uncle Toni’s able guidance, thankfully Tennis became his true Passion…
At the young age of 15, he turned Pro,
His 1st ATP victory was against Ramon Delgado.
He first defeated Roger in 2004 at Miami’s court,
As all of us realized, Rafa has arrived at this great sport…..
His biggest strength is his agility,
As he works ruthlessly hard to keep up his ability.
His athleticism on court is unmatchable,
His Tenacious court coverage is unimaginable…….
His ground strokes are embedded with Top Spin magic,
His consistency makes every Fan’s heart dance with music.
His willingness to chase down every ball proves his brilliance,
his never say die fighting spirit even in utmost pain shows his true resilience…
Completing the career Golden Slam at the age of twenty four,
Has never been achieved at this young age ever before.
His winning streak of 81 matches on clay,
Is written in golden words for every one’s display..
An Asteroid named after him will eternally show his True magnificence,
History Books will always have stories of his elegance.
Three time winner of ATP Golden Bagel award,
Prestigious Asturias & Laureus world sportsman of the year are his perseverance’s reward..
He has already marked his fate in the Hall Of Fame,
Wishing him health, success & achievement of more aims…..
Vamos Rafa & Of course, our maestro Roger Federer .
