The Nadal book entitled “Rafa” will be out on August 23 in the USA at Amazon, and August 18 in the UK. The book, published by Hyperion (272 pages), is written by John Carlin, a former a senior international writer for Spanish newspaper El Pais who is best known for writing the book that became the film Invictus.
Here’s more on what we can expect from the book from the Amazon description: “This book takes us to the heart of Nadal’s childhood, his growth as a player and his incredible career. It includes many memorable highlights, from his victory in the 2008 Wimbledon final … It transports us from Nadal’s lifelong home on the island of Majorca to the locker room of Centre Court. … It offers a glimpse behind the racquet to learn what really makes this intensely private person who has never previously talked about his home life tick. And it provides us with a story that is personal, revealing and every bit as exciting as Nadal himself.”
On facebook last week, Nadal said, “Hi everyone, after a year working with the well-known writer John Carlin, I want you to be the first to know that the book is due in August and and I want to share with you the title page. What do you think about it? Also, very soon I’ll release the first chapter only for you ;). Rafa”.
Nadal is currently in Mallorca training for the August 8 Rogers Cup in Montreal.
