Rafael Nadal Has Company in Madrid: Zidane, Ronaldo, Raul [Video]

Wherever he goes Rafael Nadal attracts the biggest stars to come out and watch him play tennis. In Madrid this week the Spanish King of Clay has had support from a host of football (soccer for me) greats including past and present Real Madrid stars Cristiano Ronaldo, Raul and Zinedine Zidane.

Ronaldo and Raul were seated courtside for Nadal’s match against Dolgopolov yesterday.

Portland Trailblazer star Rudy Fernandez and pop star Paulina Rubio were also in attendance.

Supermodel Bar Refaeli has also been out to the tennis among many other European stars this week.

So who what celebs will be out watching Nadal today?

Because I think Nadal’s going to need all the support he can get against 6-foot-9 John Isner later today. The altitude and fast courts will help John.

Anna Says:

That’s a whole lot of handsome right there. Soccer stars attended Rafa’s matches in Rome too.
Tennis apparently is the second or third most popular sport in Europe, so having “stars” from the number one sport show up at matches has to be good for PR.

fadingis Says:

in argentina it´s the second sport, and in chil I´ve been told that it´s the first

Anna Says:

Fadingis – What is the most popular sport in Argentina? In the US it’s football, baseball, basketball & golf. For the most part whatever sport is in season is most popular at that time, but I think tennis is picking up speed with the likes of Roger and Rafa.

sonic Says:

In Argentina, Brasil and the whole of Europe (thou usualy not with the fanaticism of Argentina nad Brasil) there is not really a competition of several sports that are popular, or can be at the same level of intrest in media accodring to season and events, like the 4 big sports in the US usually are.

It’s pretty much football, football, football, football, football…and then come the rest, way way down the ladder. Tennis is definately in top amongst the other sports thou, and i’d say definatly the top sport that’s not a team sport.
