It's almost summer, and for Rafael Nadal it only means one thing. Of course he will try to keep competing at highest level playing Queen's and Wimbledon, then the North American hard-court season in August, but after the French Open Nadal usually takes several days off, and then after Wimbledon some weeks off, spending time on the sea on his €3 million boat.
'It's difficult to understand the life without having the sea next to me', Nadal said in an interview with CNN. 'Difficult to imagine for myself living in a place without the sea. I am always very connected with the sea, I am always very close to it and I have spent hours and hours on the sea in my life.' Nadal has always loved the sea, since he was a kid.
And now that he has the opportunity to enjoy it in style on his yatch he feels privileged. 'Of course, great news that I have the possibility to have a boat since already years ago, and come back home and have the possibility to go out and spend some time with family, friends, girlfriend, going out, sleeping on the boat.
I love being inside the boat, I would love to navigate different places in the world and I hope to have the chance to do it in the future.' ALSO READ: What is the best thing in tennis? Grigor Dimitrov tells it
