For almost 10 years, the Barcelona Open has been synonymous to the name Rafael Nadal. The King of Clay has won the competition since 2005, except for 2010 when he withdrew. This year, he hopes to add one more in his collection of trophies as he again graces the competition that will start on April 21. His path won't be easy as many young players aim to dethrone him, including the 2010 champ Fernando Verdasco.
