Divine Interuption Rafa Wins

The Pope and Del Potro have been the talk of Argentina but today Rafael Nadal ended the Argentinian's great run.... Del Potro's that is not the Popes!.Nadal showed what it meant to win here at Indian Wells falling to the ground after winning the final point.He was back to his fighting self coming back from 1 set  down and a break ,down early in the second.Nadal was able to get to Del Potro's backhand which is not as dangerous as the forehand side.It was great to see Del Potro nail Murray and Djokovic in this tournament and hopefully he can carry on.Nadals camp is smart and with this win he has withdrawn from Miami and no doubt will be back on clay for his next tournament. Rafa had lost 6 in a row Hardcourt finals and one wondered could he again get a major win on this surface.Del Potro is the guy most likely to press outside the top four. Berdych is always around but the top guys have his measure and Tsonga needs to get over the Berdychs etc to get a shot. Nadal to win has to work hard, he has to run , he has to hit a lot of balls.His style naturally takes it toll on the body and I think we will see a very strategic tournament program set. How will Djokovic handle his loss ?and Murray needs to get a move on.Federer well he is not going to get better ,he has peaked for sure and I am not sure he can press Rafa, Djoker or Murray in the big events but he is still better than the rest.Good to see you back RAFA.
