London, Nov 6 (EFE).- Spain's Rafael Nadal edged Stanislas Wawrinka 7-6 (7-5), 7-6 (8-6) Wednesday to clinch the year-end No. 1 ranking and advance to the semifinals of the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals for the fourth time.
Nadal, who routed countryman David Ferrer on Tuesday, needed to win two matches at this year-end event to assure himself of the top ranking for 2013.
In an on-court interview inside London's O2 Arena, the Spaniard said he was thrilled to lock up the year-end No. 1 ranking at a "fantastic stadium and before this crowd."
