Rafael Nadal is back at #1
Roger Federer is my guy but I can’t expect him to be number one in the world if he doesn’t play.
Federer decided to skip the clay season (probably best) to focus on the upcoming grass court season that culminates with Wimbledon where he has won eight times.
Rafael Nadal has played in four clay tournaments this year and won three of them including the Italian Open on Sunday. The victory gave Nadal enough points to nudge Federer, who has not played since March, from the top spot.
Nadal has got to be considered the heavy favorite to win an astonishing 11th French Open unless one of the young guys like number three Alexander Zverev or number eight Dominic Thiem can stop him.
It’s time for one of these young dudes to take a stand!
