Rafael "Rafa" Nadal Parera is a Spanish professional tennis player currently ranked world No. 3.
He is widely regarded as the finest clay court player in history and has been nicknamed "The King of Clay." His evolution into an all-court threat has established him as one of the best ever all-rounders in tennis, with many considering Nadal to be one of the greatest players of all time.
Nadal has won 14 Grand Slam singles titles, the 2008 Olympic gold medal in singles, a record 27 ATP World Tour Masters 1000 and 15 ATP World Tour 500 tournaments.
He was also a member of the winning Spain Davis Cup team in 2004, 2008, 2009, and 2011.
In 2010, he became the seventh player in history and youngest of four in the Open Era to achieve the Career Grand Slam.
He is the second male player, after Andre Agassi, to complete the singles Career Golden Slam.
In 2011, Nadal was named the Laureus World Sportsman of the Year.
