PHOTOS: Rafael Nadal practices in Manacor

World No. 2 Rafael Nadal was seen practicing on a hard court in Manacor. According to Rafa’s french fan Mathilde, on his forehand shots were powerful, and he seemed to move at ease. And as usual, his cousins were also there yesterday and they played football with Rafa.

We’re looking forward to seeing our champ next week in Toronto. Vamos Rafa!

  1. Rafa I’m so disappointed and heartbroken ! My son surprised me with the tournament tickets because he knows how much I love tennis and you especially are the reason why I love tennis and three days before it begins you are not coming, I took time off work and prepared so much ordered your biography and poster from U.S.A hoping to get them autographed, I’m not sure if the tickets will get sell! I cried so much when I came home tonight I have an International student staying at my home from Spain and he told me Rafa is not coming to Toronto. I’m thankful to god everyday and maybe this disappointment is for a good reason! Such is life Rafa! I’m always in excruciating pains, you motivate and inspire me a lot and if you are hurt then you did the right thing!
