“And the ESPY goes to…”

That’s what Rafael Nadal’s fans hope to hear on July 10, the night of the 27th annual ESPY (Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly) Awards. Our champ is nominated for Best Male Tennis Player, alongside Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Stefanos Tsitsipas. You can vote HERE.

The 2019 ESPYS will be hosted by Tracy Morgan and will be broadcast live on ABC from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles from 8:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 10.


  1. Just cast my vote for Rafa who most certainly is always underrated by the voters of these awards. Roger even gave him a shout out at last year’s Laureus awards saying Rafa was equally deserving of the recognition.
    If there had been a female category would have chosen Ash Barty who will take over #1 position in the rankings with a win tomorrow at Eastbourne. Seeing as she and Rafa were victorious at RG would love to see them both repeat their feat at the Championships.


    • Rafa has been my King of tennis on any surface since 2002. Am dreading the day when this Superstar hangs up that racquet.
      Best Wishes Rafa from an Irish fan. Vamos Rafa always.🇪🇦🎾☘☘


    • Raphael Nadal is the best Male Tennis Player. Best Female Tennis Player is Simona Halep, Naomi Saka, Sofia Kenin, Madison Keys, and Miss Stephens. Are up there but I go with Simona Halep for women.


  2. He is the best player Rafa vamosssssssssssss champ ❤️💪😘🎾🌎🎾😘❤️


  3. Roger is a great player, but he wins this award whether or not he is the best that year. I already voted for Rafa, since I think his clay season last year plus RG were incredible.


    • setinthepast, I know a little more than zero about football/soccer but I do know about Gareth Bale. Saw him do a phenomenal goal a few months ago while I was channel surfing.

      It reminded me of the time I discovered Rafa so many years ago when I was riveted by his unbelievable reflexes and court coverage. Yes, I was channel surfing. LOL

  4. It’ll be great if Rafa wins the award, but right now i’m more interested in his physical well being.
    Rafa reported that he had to stop a practice session earlier this week due to “muscular overload”, which is mainly due to the switch in surfaces from clay to grass and the instaility of the grass. Thank goodness he was ok to resume training later in the week on Wednesday and Thursday.


    • Of course I voted for Rafa as I believe that no tennis feat is better than his 12th RG title. Nevertheless, if I were a better I would bet that RF would win the prize whether deserving or not.
