Victorious for the 14th time at Roland-Garros on Sunday, Rafael Nadal returned to his island of Mallorca on Monday evening. But as usual, the Spaniard did not organize any celebration or ceremony. Now the 36-year-old will rest and begin treatment for his foot in order to compete at Wimbledon.
The return of the king to his lands. Two days after his victory on Sunday in the Roland Garros final, Rafael Nadal returned to his villa in Porto-Cristo, on the island of Majorca, late at night from Monday to Tuesday. But as usual, the man with 14 titles at Roland-Garros has decided not to organize a party or a ceremony. An attitude that the inhabitants of the island understand very well, who believe that it is part of the personality of their champion. “We’re used to it. When he comes here, it’s to disconnect. He feels very good there, because he goes unnoticed, especially in Manacor. People love him here, but don’t want to disturb him”, testifies Gabriel at the microphone of Europe 1.
Will Nadal play at Wimbledon?
A habit that characterizes the relationship between Rafael Nadal and the Mallorcans. Another Manacor resident explains that this situation has been the same since the start of the Spaniard’s career. “I remember when he won his first Roland-Garros everyone had to have a big party when he came back. He just had a meal with his father, his mother, his sister and his wife”, says Juan .
According to his entourage, Rafael Nadal will now focus on his training and on this medical care, three weeks before the start of Wimbledon.
