Nadal clinches year-end No.1
07 November 2013 @ 01:22

Rafael Nadal made sure he finishes the year ranked No.1 in the world after battling hard to overcome Stanislas Wawrinka 7-6, 7-6 at the ATP World Tour Finals in London today.

It will be the third time Nadal has finished a year top of the rankings, following similar success in 2008 and 2010.

He is also the first man through to the semi-finals of the end-of-year event, with two straight-set wins from two group stage matches, having already beaten fellow Spaniard David Ferrer 6-3, 6-2 in the Group A opener on Tuesday.

Top seed Nadal, who has never won the season-ending event, improved to a 12-0 head-to-head record against Wawrinka, with the Swiss No. 2 yet to win a set off him.

Wawrinka and Berdych both have a chance to join Nadal in the semi-finals, having both recorded one win and one loss in the group matches. David Ferrer cannot now qualify after losing to both Nadal and Berdych.
