Rafa Roundup: “I make mistakes like everyone else. I am not the perfect son”


“I grew up in a very normal environment and I still live this way. If I didn’t get a big head being 19, when all of a sudden everything happened and could go to my head, it won’t happen now when I am 31.”

“I am a normal and a common person. I do not see myself as a role model of anything,” explained Nadal. “I am a guy who plays tennis well. Things have worked out great, but I took it as something normal, as my family and people around me did. I have tried to have the right attitude on and off the court. But I make mistakes like everyone else. I am not the perfect son.”

“Carlos has been a great support. He came with excitement and also the belief that with a few things, I could improve my results. And it has helped,” Nadal told Spanish newspaper El Espanol.

“It has been a breath of fresh air, positive energy. We have changed the way we practice and for Toni it has been also good.”

#1 The Fedal Bromance: There was no doubt that Federer and Nadal would be the stars of the Laver Cup show, but they put on an incredible, public display of friendship that no one could have seen coming. It’s no small feat given they will be competing for year-end No. 1 very soon.

The NBA legend Steve Nash and the Premier League player Stuart Holden, shareholders of Real Mallorca, have visited the facilities of the Rafa Nadal Academy in Manacor. Nash and Holden have been able to see the world number 1 train session with Toni Nadal and Carles Moyà and then they have made a tour to know all the areas and the method of work of the enclosure; have even experienced the interactive museum.

I beat Rafael Nadal at something? Moya: We have a table game that we play a lot during the tournaments, so the US Open. Parchís.

  6. I am still celebrating US OPEN VICTORY aka MAJOR #16. And yes, what an impact bringing on Moya has had. Let’s give some credit to all the folks here who got LOADS of hate when they suggested that a new coach was neccessary, during all those horrid losses in 2014-2016. Let’s face it: they were 100% right.
