Rafael Nadal loses in Chile Open Final

Clay King Rafael Nadal suffered a shock defeat in the final of the Chile Open to Argentina's Horacio Zeballos last night. The Spaniard comeback tournament after seven months out with a torn tendon in his left knee.

The Spaniard was an overwhelming favourite in Vina del Mar against the world no.73. But Zeballos looked every bit the equal of the seven-time French Open champion.

It was only the fifth singles final Nadal has lost on clay to go with 36 victories and he had looked on course to make that 37 after winning the first set on a tiebreak.

However Zeballos, 27, claimed a tight second-set tiebreak and then took the decider 6-4 to win the first singles title of his 10-year career 6-7, 7-6, 6-4.

Nadal will continue his comeback this week in the Brazil Open in Sao Paulo, and later this month plays again on clay in Acapulo, Mexico all aimed at getting him ready for a run at this eighth French Open title.

    quick question in which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing. I've had a hard time clearing my mind in
    getting my ideas out. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out how
    to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Thanks!
