The real special relationship: Aussie driver Iain and Rafa

Last September, Rafael Nadal shared a photo of himself with driver Iain and his wife Jane after the Australian couple were treated to dinner in Mallorca:

Iain has been (and still is) our driver at the Australian Open many years and together with his wife Jane we had last night a nice dinner at Sa Punta restaurant in Mallorca. Always nice to see you! Thanks for coming and see you in Melbourne in January!

A few days ago, Rafa has found time in his busy schedule to visit Iain and his family.

Iain:

Rafa and I have agreed that when he retires, I will retire.

    What a wonderful nice thing for you to
    Invite Rafa for dinner and him to accept. I hope you all enjoyed that
    He is a humble and nice young man. Thank you for sharing that story Sir.

    Thank the lord , where on earth do they get their energy from after 4 hours. Well done Rafa , the AO has certainly gave us some exciting matches this week. Haven’t had any sleep but I have gone past being tired and will sit and watch the Kyrgios match now . .

        Should be a good match , this no sleep is not good for the waistline though Lol. So happy for Rafa, the final is beckoning . Don’t think Novak will be there but probably Roger but I’m not ruling out Berdych on that side of the draw. Edmund’s is also doing the UK proud 😂 but as long as Rafas’s there next Sunday , who cares who else is there.

        Congrats to Kyle. If Rafa gets to the final and Roger is there – im hoping he can find a way to take him down. Rafa needs to start beating him again or roger the dodger will be winning everything. You never know though – Novak may take roger out. Now theres a thing – supporting novak vs roger is something i could never see myself doing. Lol. Well im going to enjoy nick vs grigor and then get some sleep

        I don’t mind Roger he’s a nice guy but obviously I don’t want him to win over Rafa, I did think that even I had missed Novak but when he started the love cupping again I started to wish he was still taking a break Lol

    One more set now Rafa until you meet your next opponent Marin Cilic, another tough match ahead , but like Susie has said you need to be tested especially if you are going to meet Kyrgios shortly

      Oh so you are here, Maria. Hope the gang is with you. 🙂

      Such an uncomfortable match for Rafa and us but I think he will up his game in this, hopefully, final set.
