For­mer No. 1 Nadal bat­tled a left wrist in­jury in 2016, drop­ping him from No. 5 at the be­gin­ning of the sea­son to No. 9 to fin­ish out the year. He still added to his to­tal of 69 ca­reer ti­tles with his ninth win in Monte Carlo, mark­ing his 28th ATP Masters 1000 ti­tle, and his ninth crown in Barcelona. The win in Barcelona marked his 49th ca­reer clay court ti­tle, ty­ing Vi­las for the lead in the open era. He’s the eighth man in his­tory with over 200 Grand Slam sin­gles matches, with his best 2016 Grand Slam fin­ish be­ing the round of 16 at the US Open. Nadal com­peted for Spain in the 2016 Sum­mer Olympics in Brazil, cap­tur­ing the sec­ond gold medal of his ca­reer in dou­bles with Marc Lopez. He looks to add to his 800+ ca­reer wins in Mi­ami. Nadal has reached the Mi­ami fi­nal four times (05, 08, 11, 14) and will play for his first Key Bis­cayne crown in his thir­teenth ap­pear­ance in 2017.
