Rafael Nadal was born June 3rd of 1986 in Mallorca, Spain. His father was a businessman who owned several companies, and his uncle was a former professional footballer. A different uncle saw Nadal’s athletic potential when the boy was just three years old and encouraged him to start learning how to play tennis. By the time he was eight, Rafael Nadal was winning under-12 tennis championships while also showing potential as a footballer. Eventually, Nadal’s father made him choose one sport or the other to create more time for schoolwork.
Although the Spanish tennis federation wanted Nadal to relocate to Barcelona to train with funding from the government, his family refused to let him leave home. His father covered the costs of his training instead, and he continued to develop in Mallorca. In 2001, when Nadal was just 15 years old, he defeated retired professional Pat Clash in an exhibition match.
Rafael has a close relationship with Kia Motors, which has sponsored him since 2006. He is also sponsored by Nike, and this company designed clothing specifically for Nadal over the years. In addition, he has endorsements with Lanvin colognes, Quely (a Mallorca-based food company), Emporio Armani, and PokerStars.
