Rafa  announced on his Facebook page that he will not play in any more tournaments this year so that his wrist can fully recover.

We wish him a complete recovery and look forward to seeing him play at his best in the new year.



Rafa Nadal Sports Centre and Academy
by MAC

On October 19 2016 Rafa hosted the formal opening of his Sports Centre and Academy in Manacor.

This has put it firmly on the map, both literally and figuratively.



I was there with friends but, of course, unable to attend the opening ceremony. We did, however, go back the following day to go inside and see the museum.

It's a very impressive site with a very modern feel. I particularly loved the living wall inside the main entrance.

To go to the museum you first pass the wonderful hologram of Rafa welcoming you (I want one of these for Christmas if anyone has the budget) and then watch a short film.

Of course, the most impressive parts of the museum for a fan are Rafa's trophy cabinets.
