Rafael Nadal is a man of his schedule! In keeping with his itinerary when he landed in Thailand last week, Nadal today took part in a tree planting project in honor of Thai King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s “One Million Trees for the King” charity program in Hua Hin.
Tomorrow Nadal will meet with Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva in Bangkok and then play his first round match Thursday against Belgian Ruben Bemelmans.
According to this report, Nadal is getting paid almost $1.5 million dollars ($1.47M) to show up for the Bangkok event! For that kind of money it’s no wonder Nadal has been appearing at these off-court, non-tennis events. It’s all in the name of promoting the country and culture of Thailand.
And an interview with Rafa:
