The whole of Spain is closely following what is happening in the La Palma region, where the volcano eruption has left hundreds of people homeless and with the fear that there are still more lava explosions affecting more territories of the island. Rafael Nadal, through his social networks, has expressed his concern about what happened and has sent his support to those affected, ensuring that, as the time comes, he will offer his bit to help families who have been left homeless before the advance of the lava. Succeeding on the junior circuit does not guarantee you will be an outstanding player tomorrow at the professional. Not even being able to make a living from tennis. With the idea of training the stars of the future, Rafa Nadal at his structure works to create new talents that continue to bring joy to our tennis. One of them could be Dani Rincón. The 18-year-old from Avila has just won the junior title at the US Open and during the documentary about Rafa and his structure that Movistar broadcasts, Toni Nadal said of him that he has “great potential” and that he is a “candidate to be a professional” on the day in the morning. “There will be no other Nadal, but I remain hopeful,” added Uncle Toni.
Nadal has not performed up to his lofty standards this season
20-time Major winner Rafael Nadal took to Instagram on Wednesday to send a heartfelt message of support to those impacted by a volcanic eruption in La Palma, one of Spain’s Canary Islands. “I am following the news and suffering with the terrible images of the volcano eruption on La Palma and the consequences for so many affected families,” Rafael Nadal said in an Instagram post on Wednesday. Rafael Nadal, who has been sidelined due to a wrist injury, revealed that he was keeping close tabs on the situation on the island. “I would like to send a big hug to all of you and hopefully this will end soon,” the Spaniard added. The legend of Roland Garros has been having a tough time due to his injury. He stated that his foot is still a little sore in the presentation of a documentary about his tennis structure. Due to constant injuries, Rafa hasn’t been able to perform well consistently this year. His best performances came in the Roland Garros, unsurprisingly, where he lost in the semi-final to eventual champion, Novak Djokovic. Nadal last played the Laver Cup back in 2019 as the 2020 event was canceled due to Covid. He lost the Doubles match for Europe to Nick Kyrgios and Jack Sock in a three-setter match. He had partnered up with Stefanos Tsitsipas for the game. Rafa won his men’s singles match in straight sets against the Canadian Milos Raonic that year.
