    I respect Rafael Nadal. He is an amazing tennis player. He is a left handed but he is naturally right handed. He has won 11 grad-slams and he has won the Olympics once. He won Gold :-> and that was in the 2009. He is going into this years London Olympics 2012. His biggest challenge is probably Novak Djokovic. He is the number 2 in the world. It goes:
    No.1=Novak Djokovic
    No.3=Roger Feder
