Nadal drops out of top 10 for first time since 2005 after Indian Wells

Rafael Nadal is out of the top 10 of the ATP Rankings for the first time since 2005 after dropping points from last year's Indian Wells as he played in the final.

Nadal has been dropping points since the start of the year and unfortunately for him most of his points are from this part of the season. He won the Australian Open last year but lost early this time around due to injury. He then missed all of the events he played after such as the Acapulco tennis event with the Indian Wells another big drop in points.

Due to that, Nadal slid to number 9 before Indian Wells and now to number 13 after the event. It's the first time since 2005 that he's ranked outside of the top 10 and it's the end of his crazy streak that probably never will be broken. It's unclear when Nadal will be back on the court but it's likely to happen sometime in the next few weeks.
