The 21-time Grand Slam winner Rafael Nadal has launched a new program called UAX Rafael Nadal Sports University. Nadal has given back a lot to the sport over the years, ranging from charity matches to supporting the underprivileged. Rafael Nadal’s tennis academy in Mallorca has helped the community in Spain grow exponentially as a whole.
The latest upgrade for the Rafael Nadal Academy was to merge with Alfonso X the Wise University and promote his own project, the University of Sports. The main goal of the sports university must be to bring more people into the sports industry by expanding its branches to different tracks. The university will be officially presented on April 28th.
After the Rafael Nadal Academy, which helps many tennis players to get in shape and improve, the Rafael Nadal University of Sports is also an ambitious goal with a bright future. The Spaniard is trying to get more people into the sports industry, increasing its chances of growth and sustainability.
Rafael Nadal misses the start of the clay court season due to a rib injury
Rafael Nadal was out with a serious foot injury but returned just in time to feature at the Australian Open and he became exceptional with every game. He eventually won the Happy Slam and broke the curse of 20 Grand Slams. His preparation for the Australian Open was very good as he won the title in Melbourne right after returning from injury and this win gave him a lot of confidence.
After his success at the Australian Open, Nadal continued his progress and won the Mexico Open, beating the Britons Cameron Norrie. Nadal had a 20-0 record until Taylor Fritz defeated him in the Indian Wells final.
After the final in Indian Wells, the 35-year-old was diagnosed with a stress fracture in his ribs. This meant he was unable to compete in the Miami Open and will miss most of the clay court season. Nadal is not part of the Monte Carlo Masters and has also withdrawn from the Barcelona Open. It remains to be seen when he can be back as he aims to regain the Roland Garros title from world No. 1 Novak Djokovic. But with little to no practice on clay, Nadal’s rhythm will certainly be hampered and it will be interesting to see how the Spaniard handles things.
