Rate this:
Rafael Nadal is a whirlwind of on-court power and dynamism. His exploits in winning the French Open a record 8 times has earned him the title 'King of Clay'. His clubbing, lasso-whip forehand is the most recognizable shot in tennis, and his raw power combined with a mild, soft-spoken manner has won him a legion of fans which eclipses that of any other player. Along with fantastic insight into the training and lifestyle that has made Rafa such an incredible champion, Tom Oldfield reveals all the details of his legendary - and often heated - rivalries with fellow 'Big Four' players Federer, Djokovic and Murray.
