In 2013, one man handed his old foes - 'injuries', 'anxieties' and 'doubts' an uppercut and emerged triumphant to produce one of the greatest comebacks ever witnessed not just in Tennis, but in any sport. Nobody, not even the man himself, believed that he would be able to produce a stellar year with 10 titles including; 5 Masters 1,000 titles and 2 grand slams which included a historic 8th Roland Garros title thus, capping off 13 career grand slams, aiding him to regain the Year End World Number 1 ranking for the 3rd time in his career - another record for the history books. His name is on everyone's lips. An extraordinarily humble and remarkable genius, in the face of adversity, few humans could dig so deep when the chips are down. He is the soul of Tennis - its student, champion and heart. Affectionately known around the world simply as 'Rafa,' to the history books he is Rafael Nadal. This book is a condensation of his resurrection and triumphs after a career threatening knee injury in 2012 kept him away from the tour for nearly 8 months until, his return in February 2013 seen through a series of the author's writings, illustrations and graphic art. This book is a tribute to Rafa Nadal's journey from wounded warrior to dominant champion - the true epitome of the Phoenix.
