  1. Hi Rafa, Congratulations on your 19th Grand Slam! I hope you get a straight Grand Slam this coming year 2020 starting from AO,French,Wimbeldon, and lastly US open. I know im asking too much! Hehehe But i know its possible if you are in good health! You will definitely beat Federer’s record; who is another gentleman, but I believe you deserve to hold the GOAT title because you not only shown great conduct during winning but also when loosing. You overcame health challenges and came back even better. You never disrespected anyone and you always give your 100% performance in every game. Your fire is unquenchable which makes your every game exciting. I love watching you play!!!

    • Rafa tu es le meilleur. Quand tu ne joues pas, je perds intérêt dans le match. Tu es beau, muscle et sérieux. Bonne chance dans le us open. De la floride et de France, bonne chance! On t”adore, vamos, Nadal


    • Rafael Nadal IS the Bruce Lee of tennis.

      I fell in love with tennis and Nadal watching him play with James Blake at the US Open when they were kids.

      I videotaped them and still can’t believe humans can move like they did.

      It was like watching Super NINJA warriors.

      Go RAFA!!!

  9. I’m planning a trip to watch Barcelona Open this April. Anyone has been to the Rafael Nadal Academy ? How can I get there from Barcelona ?


    • From Palma Mallorca you can get the train to Manacor and then walk to his Academy. Much cheaper than by taxi. It is well worth visiting.


    • It is in Majorca so you will have to get there first. Then to Manacor and it is just outside the main town centre you can walk from the market.


      • Im your biggest irish fan and can’t wait for Madrid it’s my favorite city (Real Madrid fan like you) and it starts on my birthday so lets get it going there the return of 3kings Zizou,Rafa n myself so Vamos Rafa n Hala Madrid White Angels!


    • there are quite a few daily flights from Barcelona to Palma, de Mallorca, with Ibera or Vueling (cheaper) or you can take the ferry to either Palma or Alcudia. I don’t know which is nearer to his academy though


    • I cannot wait to see Rafael Nadal play again we appreciate you and all your doing for the tennis world you are amazing keep up the good work I will be your fan forever


  10. Yes, of course, I said to Rafa myself in Spanish when I saw him in his Academy in Manacor on Friday 9th Nov. I am sorry about atp Paris as I live in Paris but I did not go back yet, I would not have missed him. I spent two months in Majorca and as he did not go to another one after US Open and spent more time there we had more chance to see him during six weeks. He was often training in the inside court to prepare for Paris Bercy and we saw him come out, I was lucky to get my book Rafa signed and my first selfie with him, a lovely photo taken by Carlos Moya. I told Carlos he was a good photgrapher ! Shame for him that the end of the season was a wash out but praying for him in the next year. Saw in Twittter that yesterday he was training outside in the Central Court in the Aca, it means a step in the right direction. Fiona in Paris


    • I am a best friend of you, I am from North East India,(Assam), Rafa you are always remained clay court king, we are waiting for you for French open title,surely you must win, Rafa if you lost to some body I really feel so sad. Rafa take care your health ,good luck & God may bless you abundantly.
