Rafael Nadal gave his name to a special soccer match yesterday in Manacor. The “Rafael Nadal Trophy” was at stake between FC Inter and Serverense. The match, however, ended in a 1-1 tie.
At the event Nadal told reporters that despite his strong standing in the rankings, that Novak Djokovic, not him, is the favorite to finish the year No. 1.
Nadal also added that his happiness doesn’t depend on being No. 1 or No. 2. However when he is healthy he is happy.
Rafa will be back on court next week for his Canadian Open title defense in Toronto.
