Rafa Nadal Zusammenfassung

Rafa Nadal: The King of the Court Dominic Bliss

This book is the complete guide to one of the greatest tennis players of the 21st century, winner of 21 grand slam men's singles titles, and undisputed King of the tennis court, Spain's raging bull, Rafael Nadal.

This fully illustrated biography charts his journey to the top, from his early days being coached by his uncle Toni in Mallorca and dreaming of being a professional footballer, through his early tournament career, turning professional, his first senior ATP win, first grand slam win at Roland Garros, first Wimbledon win and first Olympic gold medal and record breaking 21st Grand Slam win.

Written by Dominic Bliss, a veteran tennis journalist with a close personal knowledge of Rafa as a competitor and as a man, this biography tracks Rafa's journey from painfully shy pin-up boy to senior statesman on the ATP Tour.

Structured around 10 key matches in his long career, it takes readers from his first national junior championship win at age 14 (when he played with the pain of a broken finger on his racquet hand) through to his 21st Grand Slam title in January 2022, where he came back from two sets down to defeat Daniil Medvedev in an epic 5-set match.

From his need for water bottles to be arranged 'a certain way' on the court, to his charity work raising $17 million to help the Red Cross' efforts to support those impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, this book examines every angle of Rafa as a human being, a model athlete, a serial winner. This definitive work on one of tennis' all time greats is not to be missed!
