A number-two for the ages right here.
Rafael Nadal: done? Not. Likely.
Remember when Rafa hadn't won a title for months on end, going from 2009 to the start of the '10 clay-court season? It's hard to believe that even transpired after the year he ended up having.
Three Majors won--in a row. Three ATP 1000 titles won. The career Slam completed. The year-end number-one ranking. Truly a year for the ages.

Rafael Nadal and the greatest men's Slam year EVER
Months later, and I still feel that way. Right on, Rafa!
