Nadal reclaims No. 1 spot
05 October 2013 @ 11:14

Rafael Nadal will reclaim the No. 1 spot in the ATP World Rankings on Monday after reaching the final of the China Open in Beijing earlier today.

Nadal was leading the semi-final against World No. 5 Tomas Berdych 4-2 in the first set when the Czech player retired after injuring his back as he ran for a backhand slice.

"I barely can sit, I[can] barely can stand up [or] walk," said Berdych after he was forced to pull out with what he described as a "new" injury.

The 27-year-old Spaniard, who won the French Open (d. Ferrer) and US Open (d. Djokovic) this year, has not been No. 1 in the world since July 2011.
