Rafael Nadal’s sponsor, PokerStars.net, released this video of the tennis great enjoying some poker fun and BBQ at his house in Mallorca.
“My history with this game is simple,” Nadal told Marca via Google Translation. “Those Sunday afternoons where it rains and not much to do, I played a little game with my friends or my family.”
Nadal, who admitted he doesn’t like to bluff, also said that post tennis he could see himself joining the poker tour, maybe playing in the World Series of Poker.
Since his loss to Nick Kyrgios at Wimbledon, Nadal has vacationed in Ibiza, done some fishing and most recently has begun training for the hardcourts.
Nadal will make his return next month in Canada where he begins a 3-tournament title defense (Canada, Cincinnati, US Open).
