Tennis great Rafael Nadal has a new iPhone app

"You can use it anywhere on the court or at school, and compare any shot of yours to a professional player," says Nadal.





SAN FRANCISCO Tennis great Rafael Nadal is ready for his comeback.

Since a knee injury sidelined him after this year's Wimbledon, he's been out of action. But he'll be back at the Australian Open next month, and with a new iPhone app.

The new Rafael Nadal Tennis Academy App, developed with video-analysis firm Vstrator, will be available within the next few days on iTunes. It offers in-depth tennis tutorials of Nadal's strokes, along with Vstrator's easy-to-use video coaching tools.

"This helps you visualize how to become a better player," Nadal, the world's No. 4-ranked player, told USA TODAY in a phone interview.

The app (www.vstrator.com/rafanadal) lets consumers capture and analyze video of athletic motions such as ground strokes and serves. Video can be recorded or imported from a smartphone camera into the app. So-called "Vstrate" technology lets users highlight video to zero in on any part of their game.

Users of the app can frame video forward and back to compare their technique with Nadal and other players. Vstrator video can be shared via Facebook, Twitter, e-mail or text message.

The normally low-key Nadal, 26, rarely does interviews or endorsements. But he made an exception with Vstrator to reach out to fans, he says.

"You can use it anywhere on the court or at school, and compare any shot of yours to a professional player," says Nadal, an 11-time Grand Slam champion. "It is a great way to learn tennis, and see how you can improve."

Vstrator hopes to "lead the sports community into the digital age and taking coaching and training to a new level," says Rob Autry, the company's CEO and founder
Despite being out of competition for more than 6 months this guy is still creating ripples around the world..:)

So, if I ever succumb to a nervous tic that forces me to constantly "adjust" a part of my anatomy below my waist, will I be able to compare my technique to The Great Mallorcan's???

Did Rafa write the app himself?

does it also teach how to properly call the trainer at the right wrong time, bully your opponent, get coaching from tio toni, pick your butt, etc. ?

Oh my god! I am so thrilled.

My life revolves around such a trivial absurdity.

LOL! I love it.

I thought the app was going to be something like, "how to get out of a big corporate meeting by having a knee injury even though nobody was able to see you limping"...

The new update includes "how to get out of a dinner with your in-laws by having a stomach virus".

but nadal fans were getting a bit jealous, so here is...
... the nadal-monkey !

whereas the benefits of the feder-bear were given to a charitable association for helping the poor little children of the world, the benefits of the nadal-monkey will help building a new generation of nuclear nukes (+ a bit for buying a new sport car to uncle tony).

PS: RBF, don't forget to order it for Xmas ! ;)
