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.

  3. 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

  8. 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.
