Tennis: Many tennis experts wrote off Rafael Nadal’s chances of finishing the season as world number one after his first round loss at Wimbledon but the fact is that he still has strong chance to end the season as highest ranked player.

Nadal, who has already qualified for the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals in London, is at top if we count points earned only in this season. The Spaniard has 7010 points and leads reigning world number one Novak Djokovic by 780 points. Djokovic is on second position and will give tough time to Nadal in this race.

Murray also is a contender now to finish the season as world number one for the first time after winning Wimbledon. The Brit is at third spot after earning 5160 points so far in this year.

Although, Nadal’s chances of becoming the year end world number one faced a serious blow after his surprise loss in the opening round at Wimbledon but if he stays healthy during rest of the season, he will be front runner for achieving the honour for third time in his career.

There is plenty of tennis still left in this season with US Open, season ending championships, four ATP World Tour Masters 1000 events and some ATP World Tour 500 events waiting in line to be held in this season.

This second part of the season on hard courts has traditionally been tough for Nadal, as he enters this period tired after having busy schedule during the clay season. However, the Spanish star will be relatively fresh as he has played lesser matches in this season, missing Australian Open at the start of the season and losing early at Wimbledon.

Nadal’s fans would also hope that he repeats his brilliant hard court season performance of 2010 again in this season, when he captured US Open title and reached the final of season ending championships.
