Tennis: World number four Rafael Nadal was a very good host at the Champions Party sponsored by Bacardi as he played music for his guests and also made drinks for them.
The Spanish star joked that he enjoyed the role of DJ and his mock tail making skills had also improved but he would still concentrate on his tennis career at this moment.
Nadal is the brand ambassador of Bacardi and promotes their mission of teaching people to Drink Responsibly. Bacardi’s mission is to remain committed to the responsible and safe consumption of their brands by legal drinking age consumers.
They launched a promotion in which Bacardi’s customer could win a chance to attend this Champions Party with Rafael Nadal as their host. The winners were selected after a competition and the party took place a couple of days back.
The part was held on the island of Mallorca and the DJ of the night was MTV presenter Laura Whitmore, who not only played music for the guests but also taught Nadal to do so.
Nadal posted a picture on his facebook page in which he could be seen posing with a group of guests. He wrote this caption under the picture, “Enjoying very much at the Champions Party. Remember: always drink responsibly!”
He also shared his views with the media and said, “It was an amazing weekend and I really enjoyed hosting ‘The Champions’ Party.’ I invited some of my closest friends to the party, too, and everyone had a great evening. I’m happy so many people connected with the online promotion.”
He added, “However, while taking the stage to DJ was a lot of fun and my mock tail making skills are improving all the time, I think I will continue to focus on my tennis career!”
Nadal is training almost daily for the coming hard court season in North America. The Spaniard will take part in the two Masters events in Montreal and Cincinnati and then the last Grand Slam of the season the US Open.
How to play from the baseline
The expression “to endure the rally” is about those indeterminate moments of a rally where none of the players is leading.
The ability to endure the rally is fundamental when you play a “long rally”, because it offers you the chance to measure your opponent’s strong points and vulnerabilities, besides letting you position as best as possible for your next offensive shot.
