Tennis - With the tennis circuit set to resume in August, World No. 2 Rafael Nadal has begun training over the past few weeks. The Spaniard was captured practising on clay at the Rafa Nadal Academy in Mallorca by a tennis fan, who posted the same on their social media account.
Nadal has confirmed that he will play in the Mutua Madrid Masters in Madrid on clay, which begins the day after the US Open ends. He has yet to confirm if he will play the US Open in New York in August. It remains to be seen if his practising on clay is an indication that he may not travel to the United States for the tournaments scheduled there.
