At 15, Nadal won his first match on the circuit. Two months later, he captured his first championship in Sopot, Poland. By 2005, he dominated the European clay-court season, winning in Rome, Barcelona, and Monte-Carlo before winning his first Grand Slam tournament at the French Open. That year, he won 11 trophies, which is still his most excellent total for a single season.

2013 was Nadal's second-most successful year when he won 10 titles despite missing the season's beginning due to injury. Between Sao Paulo in February and the French Open, he competed in eight tournaments and only dropped a match against Novak Djokovic in the Monte-Carlo final.

Nadal is a beautiful example of triumphing despite hardships and physical constraints. He has battled off multiple injuries throughout his career, including a chronic knee injury, with courage and perseverance. He disproved everyone who questioned his durability by continuing to rule the roost far past 30 despite having a physically taxing playing style.
