Rafael Nadal Will Have a Street Named After Him in Spain

Although world No. 1 Rafael Nadal is not from Valladolid, he will have a street named after him in one of the largest cities in the northwest of Spain, reported local media.

The Valladolid City Council voted to rename a Rector Luis Suarez Street as Rafael Nadal Street in honor of the Spanish superstar.

The city has a great communication network, with its own international airport (Villanubla) and excellent train and motorway connections leading to Madrid, the northwest of Spain, France and Portugal.
