Rafa Nadal’s academy in Mallorca has been receiving immense support from the Tennis fraternity all over the world, with Roger Federer gracing the academy last year for the inauguration, and Grigor Dimitrov spending some time with Rafa Nadal there, something that helped him immensely in the second half of the season.

“Roger Federer said that he would bring his sons to the Rafael Nadal Tennis Academy.” Nadal said.
Nadal then went onto talk about his academy and how this is one of the most important projects of his entire life.
“I would say that it is the most important professional and vital project of my career, it is very special for me,” Nadal said.
“The Academy is a training centre for athletes where they are given all the possible opportunities so that they can reach their maximum potential, and is equipped with the latest technology applied to sports.” he concluded.
