Very good signs for Rafael Nadal. According to some close sources of TennisWorld USA, on Saturday in Mallorca during the last practice session before going to Rio The Spaniard player beat Andy Murray two sets to love winning the first set 6-1.
Rafa played at a good level, while the British player was very low with the legs because of the heat and did not put many first serves IN. Anyway, now there are very high chances to see Nadal playing singles at the Olympic Games as well.
Here is a video of the practice session:
Meanwhile Rafa sent a very beautiful message to Luke Siegel, son of the coach Tim Siegel, who has been suffering a serious brain injury since July 28, 2015.
On that day Luke, a 10-year-old, and his friend, were riding in a golf cart in South Lubbock at a high speed, driving in circles around a cul-de-sac. Witnesses said the golf cart tipped over. Luke was taken to University Medical Center for treatment where his family learned that Luke had gone into cardiac arrest and suffered severe brain damage.
He suffered head and chest trauma which lead to TBI and anoxic brain injury. 'I just want to send you a very very big hug - said Nadal - I heard your story and it's just amazing that you are a very strong guy and everything will be much much better soon.
All the best, see you soon.' ALSO READ: David Ferrer: ´Rafael Nadal´s injury situation is delicate´
