Rafa is from Mallorca, has an uncle who has been a Barcelona player for many years (Miguel Angel Nadal), yet he is a huge Real Madrid fan. Los Blancos is a documentary that is having great success in Spain and where the protagonists are various people linked to the world of Real Madrid.

Rafa appeared in this documentary and revealed a curious background about his passion. 'Blanca' Here are his statements: "The first time I saw Real Madrid was at my home in Mallorca. My uncle played for Mallorca and I wore the Real shirt, I had to go out on the pitch with Michel but I couldn't.

I was really shy and couldn't go out on the pitch, I stayed in the tunnel. Then from this point of view things have improved for me, but that is the first memory that binds me to the world of Real Madrid."

Moya opens up on Nadal

In a recent interview with Onda Cero, Rafael Nadal's coach Carlos Moya spoke highly about how his charge was able to take his first chance to win a 21st Slam.

"What's amazing is how he seized his chance," Moya said. "Roger had two match points to win the 21st Grand Slam and could not convert them. Novak couldn't resist the pressure and played one of the worst matches in years in the final of the US Open 2021.

"He will be one of the big favorites at Roland Garros 2022 if he is healthy," Moya said. "And this tournament is the big goal at the moment."
