Rafa's 2008 Road to Number 1

He started it in Monte Carlo in April...


then went on to win Barcelona ...then avenged his loss to Federer in Hamburg.He then demolished Federer in the Roland Garros final to win his 4th straight French Open.Then it was time to win his first grass court title when he won at the Queen's Club.
Then he made history in Wimbledon beating Federer in 5... They both gave us a DAY to remember.

After a short break... he came back to win the Toronto Masters and became ever so close to sealing the deal, especially after Federer lost early....


He didn't win the title in Cincinnati but reaching the semis there was more than enough to secure the number 1 ranking. But his celebrations had to be postponed till August 18th cuz of the calendar shift...

And finally... Rafa grabbed the Gold medal at the Olympics on August 17th to add to his triumph for becoming number 1 in the world on August 18th.
