The most animalistic/brutal/emotional rallies/points/shots between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic in 2013. After the second round loss to Lucas Rosol at the 2012 Wimbledon Rafael Nadal was off the courts for 7 months due to knee injury (he has chronic tendinitis in both of them). In 2013 Nadal returned in Vina del Mar, Chile where he reached the final (lost to Zeballos). In 2013 Nadal won 10 titles, including two Grand Slams - Roland Garros (def. Djokovic and Ferrer) and US Open (def. Kohlschreiber, Gasquet and Djokovic). he also won 5 ATP World Tour Masters events - BNP Paribas Open Indian Wells, Mutua Madrid Open, internazionali BNL d'italia Rome, Rogers Cup Montreal, Western & Southern Open Cincinnati. These wins gave him a 75-7 (91.46%) record in singles. Djokovic also finished 2013 strong with a 22-match winning streak, winning the titles in Beijing (for the 4th time without a single loss at the event), Shanghai Masters, Paris Masters, the Masters Cup in London, and the Davis Cup (def. Czech Republic in the final). We welcome the 2014 tennis season with much expectation!
