Nadal's 900th win

Backspin1183

G.O.A.T.
His victory over Marterer was his 900th career win.

"I don't feel old. But I am 32, and I have been here since 2003, so it's a long way, a lot of years," he said.

"I started very young. That's a real thing. But, no, I feel happy to be here. Being honest, I am enjoying the day by day on the tour and I hope to keep doing this for a while."

Do you see him reach 1000th win? So that his loyal and dedicated fan @vive le beau jeu ! can keep posting about the Nadal and the topspin plague?

If you told me in 2007 that he'd be saying this in 2018, I would HAPPILY #TakeDatDeal. Nadal is so epic :) thanks for still being around King :p Nadal and Undertaker still around in 2018, who says my childhood has to end? ;)

Who else read all that in Nadal's accent?
It's fun.

It is just madness that this man has accomplished this feat, and unlike Vilas (the other clay head in the top 5, and the one he's closest to) who racked up over 2 thirds of his wins on the dirt, less than half of Rafa's are on his favourite surface.

Was Vilas really that great on clay or was he just someone who played a lot on it.

Well... Would he play on it so much if he wasn't great on it? :p I mean his primary problem is Borg, you lift Borg out and the guy has 3 Roland Garros titles to his name, you couple that with his success at the US Open in the Har-Tru days and it's tough to not consider him one of the greats on the surface. His incredible fitness, and heavy use of topspin made him a pretty perfect dirtballer. His win streaks on the surface should speak for themselves! Granted, he certainly did play a lot of rinky dink tournaments on the surface (he's won more clay court matches than pretty much anybody else has even played) but he's won enough titles in Paris, Rome, Monte Carlo, Hamburg for me to put him at worst top 5 on it.
