Surely it depends on how alcaraz does at wimbledon really.
Rafa v Alcaraz Olympic final would i think draw close to 1 billion viewers such would be the magnitude of it be across the sporting globe.

Rafa - a Businessman


Time Out Dubai says that “TATEL Dubai, in partnership with sports stars Rafael Nadal, Cristiano Ronaldo and Pau Gasol, is now officially open in Dubai”, but I’m not sure Rafa is still a shareholder in the TATEL restaurant chain.


TATEL_Venue-768x1152.jpg
TATEL_Venue-4-768x1152.jpg


TATEL Dubai is the 8th restaurant in the TATEL restaurant chain, whose first restaurant was opened in Madrid in 2014. The restaurant chain was created and operated by Mabel Capital, the investment company owned by Rafa (33%) and two Spanish businessmen, but the three owners have reached an agreement to split the company into two: Rafa & one businessman will keep the real estate business and the other businessman will operate the restaurants. According to some newspapers, Rafa will also be involved in the restaurant business.

:cool:

As a BIG rafa fan, MAN do i really want Nadal to get a hair transplant (or another session if hes gotten one before). His hair on the front just look so weird and messy, and falling. I have gotten two sessions of hair transplants and am so happy i got them done. Or he could simply wear a high quality hair piece. He would look so much better.

I know it isnt. Im just saying he will look better with a simple procedure. it's just my own opinion. We dont have to consider Nadal as a God, and defend him on everything. It's ok, in most ways he is human just like all of us

Rafa Nadal Foundation


Children participating in the RN Foundation’s project titled Play All celebrated the end of the school year (the project is running during a school year.)

The RNF website:
¤¤ “Play All” was born with the objective of promoting positive values among minors through the regular practice of tennis.

Where
The groups where the “Play All” Project
is developed are located in vulnerable areas of the city of Barcelona.
The project is located in neighborhoods that present a series of social problems related to the degradation of infrastructure, the low socioeconomic level of families and the increase in the immigrant population with great lack of access to standardized resources, such as sports, in this case tennis.

Methodology
The main objective of this new project, which is carried out thanks to the alliance with Nike and the collaboration of the Fundació Tennis Barcelona , is to accompany minors through regular tennis training and use this sport as a tool for transmitting four values. Positives: sportsmanship, commitment, camaraderie and effort.

Beneficiaries
The Play All project has as direct beneficiaries the group of boys, girls and adolescents between the ages of 6 and 16. who are in a situation of social vulnerability.

Goals
We work with the objective of providing access to tennis to those minors who would find it difficult to practice this sport. Through the training, we work with the beneficiaries on four important values both on and off the track.¤¤ (Translated from Spanish via Google.)


(y) to Rafa's foundation!
