It’s no wonder Rafael Nadal met Prince Albert II of Monaco last week. After seven straight Monte Carlo Masters titles, Nadal practically owns the city!
A week ago last Sunday, Nadal got a special invitation to visit the Palace of Monaco and the tennis World No. 1 couldn’t pass it up.
“Thank you for the invitation,” Nadal said. “It was an honor to come to the Palace of Monaco and a pleasure to meet with HSH Prince Albert II. He is a big supporter of the tournament and I want to thank him for everything.
Interestingly, several top plays like Novak Djokovic and Caroline Wozniacki have residences in Monte Carlo for tax purposes. Nadal, as far as I know, does not.
This week, after capturing his first title of season Sunday, Nadal returns to Barcelona where he’s won that title five straight times. Today, Nadal will play his first match against Daniel Gimeno-Traver.
