I came across this video, and it seems Rafa's interest was not in tennis in 2015, but he was preparing for an alternative career.
I believe so. And if I remember correctly this little tournament was a single table thing. Aka the level of skill required to win one tournament like that is nothing. Anybody can do that if they get cards. The real skill for tournament poker players comes from consistent results in large field events.Didn't he got kicked out of the Pocker Stars team?
A very sad day for tennis.
