The left-handed Argentine earned international attention winning his first career title. On February 10, 2013, the 73rd-ranked Zeballos delivered a stunning, 6-7 (2), 7-6 (6), 6-4 upset of Rafael Nadal to capture his first career ATP title and spoil the Spaniard’s comeback tournament in Vina del Mar. Nadal entered the match with a 36-4 record in clay-court finals, but Zeballos beat him to join Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic as just the third man to beat the King of Clay in a clay-court final.
