"Newly-crowned world number one Rafa Nadal will launch his assault on the US Open trophy with an opening round match against a qualifier, after the draw ceremony in New York on Thursday.
Rafa is looking to clinch his third Grand Slam tournament this season. However, there is a long way to go: He could meet big-serving Croat Ivo Karlovic, the number 13 seed, in the third-round with a potential quarter-final clash with David Nalbandian. In the semis he could face Spain's David Ferrer, the number four seed."

The Golden Nadal..

Phew.. mission accomplished again??
Yes, Rafael Nadal is the Single Men's Tenis - Gold Medal Winner
Beijing Olympic 2008.. yahooo.

I just don't want to be too excited the whole Beijing event..
Don't want to be too ambotious ?? No ?
He just seems to be unbeatable..
Rafa Nadal will celebrate his rise to the top of the world on Monday as the new Olympic champion after a straight sets victory over Chilean Fernando Gonzalez in Beijing on Sunday.
The irresistible Spaniard triumphed 6-3 7-6 (7-2) 6-3 to secure another high point in his remarkable season and send him off to the US Open in style as he bids to claim his third Grand Slam crown in a row.

The Olympic title was his eighth of 2008 and the 31st of his career. He is the highest-ranked player to win the men's singles at the Games, in his record 160th and last week as the number two, before being the first left-hander for ten years to get to the top of the rankings – despite still considering Roger Federer to be better.
"When I got to Beijing I was incredibly tired and the first few days practicing were very hard" admitted Rafa. "The only reason I was able to win was the lift I got from living in the Olympic village. Being among many other great athletes was fantastic. And the support I got from the rest of the Spanish team was amazing.
"Although they don't know it, it was thanks to them that I somehow found the energy and mental strength to get the gold medal. I would not have been able to manage this from a hotel, however luxurious it was. The feeling at the end on the podium was indescribable. I am very happy to have made it to Olympic champion.

"The Olympic Games are very special. I know in tennis the grand slams are a little bit more important. But here you only have one chance every four years.
For sportsmen, the Olympic Games are more important than anything.
I feel like I win for all my country. That's more special, no? I win for a lot of people, not only for me.
Vamos Rafa...

The #1 King..

He's THE NEWORLD #1 just after he won against Lapentti...
Nadal reaches Cincinnati semis, to be No. 1
MASON, Ohio (AP) -- For
Rafael Nadal, moving up to No. 1 is just a matter of time.

The 22-year-old Spaniard made a change at the top inevitable Friday by advancing to the semifinals of the Cincinnati Masters. He beat Nicolas Lapentti 7-6 (3), 6-1 for his 32nd straight win, setting up a seismic shift in the world rankings.

But how nice if he won the Final Trow & make it another
Victory for Officially to be #1.

“I feel happy because for sure to be No. 1 is hard work from a long, long time ago,” Nadal said. “But there’s no time to be excited and enjoy.”

He's just too tired..

After a so-so performance in the semifinals on Thursday night, Nadal said he was starting to feel the effect of all those matches he’s played in the last two months, including his epic five-set victory over Federer at Wimbledon. On Saturday, he looked worn down in the opening set.
“Probably I wasn’t at my 100 percent,” Nadal said. “During all this tournament, I didn’t play my best much.”

Anyway good rest and we will see the new #1 in Beijing..

Vamos Rafa...

Maksudnya...I'm done with ATP Tennis, next is Olympic Beijing...
Before the heat is on at US Open..

Augus t18th.. here the New King come..
