That IW win is probably the most unexpected win of Nadal's career. He actually looked more impressive in the semis and final of IW (his backhand especially) than he's looked in the 5 clay events. Puzzling. Outside of the slams, Davis Cup and Olympics, that 2013 IW title I suspect will be Nadal's favorite win ever. His celebrating was hardcore at IW.
