Rafael Nadal starts training for Wimbledon on Mallorca grass courts

Rafael Nadal on Monday began training for Wimbledon by practising on the grass courts used for the WTA Mallorca Open.

The King of Clay, a two-time Wimbledon champion, is expected to travel to London to continue his preparations for the grass court Grand Slam event, which starts on July 1.


  1. Praying so hard that Rafa will win Wimbledon and make his 19th grand slam title. So want him to surpass Federer. Great wedding present to himself and Ziska. Waiting with bated breath and excitement for Wimbledon .

  2. Yes, I’m still celebrating Rafa’s 12th Coupe. And 18th Slam.

    “On Nadal saying Thiem is a great example for him and younger players, Dominic commented:

    ‘It’s amazing to hear that from [Rafa] him because he’s exactly the same, such a fair athlete.

    Always gives his best, I guess, every day in practice and in every match, of course. So it’s an example, and it’s very nice to hear that from him.’”
