Comeback king Nadal wins at Indian Wells

INDIAN WELLS, California - Rafa Nadal added another triumphant chapter to his comeback story by beating Juan Martin Del Potro in the BNP Paribas Open final on Sunday to win his third title of the year.

The Spanish left-hander was sidelined for seven months last year with a left knee injury but has been in stunning form since he returned, reaching four straight finals and compiling a 17-1 record to start the year.

Nadal had to come from a set and 1-3 down to beat Argentine Del Potro 4-6 6-3 6-4 and take his 22nd ATP Masters title and a third at Indian Wells.

“It’s impossible to have a better comeback, no? Happy for everything,” said the 11-time grand slam champion. Reuters
