Rafael Nadal spent Saturday visiting some of the many sights in Rio de Janeiro, and among the attractions was the famous Christ the Redeemer statue that sits at the peak of the Corcovado mountain in Rio de Janeiro.
“It is one of the most spectacular things I have ever seen,” Nadal said. “It is very beautiful, the surrounding mountains, an amazing view. And the statue is fantastic. It is a great luck to be in Rio. It is always nice to visit new places and Rio was definitely one of the places I wanted to be.”
The World No. 1 will begin play on Tuesday in Rio against countryman Daniel Gimeno-Traver.
