Without crutches (at a women's tournament):


:)
From their site:

The Balearic golfer publicly reappeared without crutches after receiving a foot treatment last Thursday that will keep him away from the slopes for the next few months. Nadal showed his great passion for golf by visiting Golf Santander by surprise. Nadal delighted with his undaunted smile, and even challenged four of the legends who gathered at the Pro-Am, specifically the four professionals present who have some participation in the Solheim Cup: Tania Elósegui, Raquel Carriedo, Paula Martí and Ana Belén Sánchez. The professionals competed with Rafa Nadal on the 18th green, with a symbolic putt stroke that showed the quality of the tennis player also on the golf courses.

Nadal, handicap -1.2, who could be seen walking with caution, showed that golf is one of his great passions. With a very friendly and smiling attitude, he enjoyed with the players this fun challenge in which Tania Elósegui was the professional who managed to get the ball closer to the hole, ahead of a Rafa Nadal who was about to hole in his first tried.

The Balearic tennis player has proven to be one of the great supporters of women's golf, sharing games with players such as Nuria Iturrioz on numerous occasions, a player who has a victory on the Santander Golf Tour. In addition, he claimed to be a loyal follower of the European Solheim Cup team, following their victory last weekend on American soil.

Rafa should know by now that he is a global star and do this sort of thing in English which is the language a great percentage of the world understand.

Rafa & Sponsor - Banco Santander

Rafa visited Banco Santander (Santander Bank) in Madrid on Tuesday.

Ana Botín, the executive chairman of Santander Group, posted a video and wrote: "With healthy ambition, flexibility in the face of change and always giving the best of oneself, not only when you are at 100%, but also when you are not at your best. That is the answer that the winner of 20 Grand Slams gave us - "for now", as he puts it - yesterday [Tuesday] to the leaders of all the countries and divisions of the bank.

It was the first time in a long time that we could see each other face to face and there is no one better than Rafa to give us his vision of success. Like every time we see each other, I keep learning a lot from him.

Rafa asks us the same banks as his team - to be trustworthy, socially responsible and to help families and companies fulfill their dreams.

And he has accepted the challenge of seeing us on the golf course, a “Ryder” between his team and the@santander.global. Rafa, you were great, thanks for coming and for your trust in the bank." (Translated from Spanish via Google)

Rafa Nadal Foundation

Rafa's academy/sports centre in Mallorca hosts the Masters (final) of the 8th editon of the Rafa Nadal Tour by Sandander from September 17 - 19.

The RN Tour is an annual junior tennis circuit for boys & girls under 16 years old in Spain. The Tour is divided into three age groups: 12 & Under, 14 & Under and 16 & Under. The Tour was created by Rafa's foundation in 2014. Mapfre, Spain's leading insurance company, was the title sponsor of the Tour from 2014 to 2020. Since this year, the Tour is sponsored by Banco Sandander, a Spanish multinational bank, which is also Spain's largest bank.

Tournaments were held in 4 cities in 2014, 7 cities in 2015, 6 cities in 2016 (twice in Barcelona&Alicante), 7 cities in 2017, 6 cities in 2018 & 2019 and 4 cities in 2020 (one of the initially planned tournaments, in Alicante, had to be suspended due to the pandemic). The Tour final (Masters) has been held in Rafa's hometown of Manacor.

This year, the 8th editon of the Tour was hosted in 5 cities: Barcelona (twice), Seville, Valencia, Alicante and Madrid. Winners of the 6 tournaments qualified for the Tour final (Masters) taking place at Rafa's academy/sports centre this week. [Source: the RN Tour webpage, translated via Google]

I am actually Greedy. I want him to add 1 more AO and 1 Wimbledon....he's been painfully close in both events.
He can have several more years of slams if he gets over the foot problem, because his knees haven't been an issue lately.
But even if the foot pain continues, at least we know he can win a 98 minute set vs. Djokovic (because he very nearly did, very winnable Set Point).
I remember just before that Set Point, I paused the TV and I thought "this is for all the marbles", even though it would only be 2-sets-to-1, that was the 21st slam title right there.
