The former World No. 1 Rafael Nadal believes he can return back to No. 1 position in the ATP Rankings in 2012, if he wins more Grand Slams next year.

The 25-year-old Nadal holds No. 2 position with 9,595 points in the ATP Rankings at the end of the season, winning French Open crown at Roland Garros in May. Spaniard is behind to four-time major title holder Novak Djokovic stands at No. 1 spot with 13,630 points, before heading into the new season. Nadal is having the most of the possibilities to climb back to No. 1, where he is just 4035 points away from the top spot in the ATP Rankings.

The World No. 2 Nadal will face tough battle against his best rival 16-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer for top spot in next season. Swiss maestro has showed outstanding performance at the end of the season winning three ATP Tour titles at Basel, Paris and London Arena. Federer has return back to No. 3 position with 8,170 points and just 1425 points behind to Nadal to climb one spot to No. 2 in the ATP Rankings.

Nadal has showed better performance at the Spain’s Davis Cup final against Argentina, where he has helped his nation to lift the title for the fifth time in Seville on Sunday. Nadal said he will return back to action strongly next year to achieve number one spot and going to start 2012 campaign at 2012 Qatar Open in Doha in January.
