Earlier this morning Rafa Nadal won his ninth Grand Slam title, adding the only trophy that he had missed so far to his large collection of prizes. By completing his set of Grand Slam titles, Nadal joins the ranks of André Agassi and Roger Federer in the Open Era, plus Fred Perry, Donald Budge, Rod Laver and Roy Emerson in the all-time Tennis annals, winning the Roland Garros (2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010), Wimbledon (2008, 2010), the Australian Open (2009) and the US Open (2010) trophies. At age 24, Nadal is the youngest man to achieve this rare accomplishment. Out of eleven Grand Slam finals played since 2005, the boy from Manacor (Mallorca) won nine, entering the books of tennis history. With 12,025 points, Rafael Nadal continues as Number One in the ATP rankings, with Novak Djokovic now ranking as Number Two, and Roger Federer in third place.
