Only One Rafael Nadal
My name is Braxton Fagan, and I'm a sixth grader at Holman Middle School in Richmond, Virginia. This is my reasearch project on Rafeal Nadal who is my favorite tennis player.
Rafeal Nadal is a tennis player who is known as The King of Clay. He turned pro in 2001, and he is ranked number one in the world. Nadal was born on June 3, 1986, in Manacor, Spain. He has won 14 grand slams.
How he become number one in the world
In the us Open Rafeal lost to Andy Murray he became number three in the world. But in at the French he beet Andy in a third set tie breaker. In 2013 he tour his ACL and he was out of the year. He came back the next year and won the french open and he was back on top.
When Nadal was little he dreamed to be a tennis pro. At age 18 teen he was sent to Florida to a tennis academy. Rafa took the chance of going there and trying to be one of the greats. When he was 20 he made it in the world tour and he lost every match but one day he beat John Isner in the first round of the french Open. Rafael went to the semi finals and lost to Roger Federer.
