Rafael Nadal has a better chance than ever to win his first ATP Finals title this year, according to Tim Henman. The Spaniard has already long ensured his place among the greatest tennis players of all time from his illustrious playing career.
Dubbed the ‘King of Clay’ due to his dominance at the French Open, he won his 13th title at Roland Garros back in October to draw level with Roger Federer’s all-time Grand Slam record.
Nadal has just one title on indoor hard courts, which came in Madrid back in 2005.
He has been forced to withdraw from the ATP Finals on six occasions, but his last appearance in the final came back in 2013.
Henman believes Nadal’s struggles at the season-ending tournament have been down to his aggressive style of play, grinding down his body towards the end of the year.
