I doubt he will ever do that. International superstars like Nadal are sponsored by like 20 firms, they dont advertise each one 24 7

maybe because of his anti-sportsmanship attitude?
maybe because he probably gets shots from Dr Fuentes?
maybe because he cheats by getting non-stop instructions from his coach while on the court?

Nadal reports luxury watch stolen

A day after making history by winning his seventh French Open title, Rafael Nadal awoke Tuesday in Paris to discover a watch worth $374,000 had been stolen, Le Parisien newspaper reported.

The watch, which Nadal was wearing after his victory Monday, was lent to the Spanish tennis sensation by the luxury brand Richard Mille for the competition

Re: The Tennis player Rafal Nadal will be the new ambassador of PokerStars!!!

I love Rafa, but do they really need ANOTHER ambassador/pokerstars pro. I'm sure Rafa doesn't come cheap either. If they took half the money they spend on these pros/ambassadors and spend it on their players instead, then their rewards systems might not suck balls for almost everyone who plays there.

Rafa Nadal officially joins Stars

Rafa now joins Pokerstars, which should now help expand the poker market even more.

Thoughts?

Re: Rafa Nadal officially joins Stars

This is great news; Poker needed a global superstar as one its faces. I'm guessing Stars dished out a lot of money to sign Nadal and will be pushing some big ads around

Rafa is also asking for your help, and wants you to send a video giving him your top poker tip. The best will be shown here every week, and Rafa will award exclusive prizes to the videos he thinks give him the most useful advice. The player who’s video impresses Rafa the most at the end of the contest will win a European Poker Tour (EPT) Barcelona prize package, including buy-in for the €5,300 Main Event (August 19-25), eight nights accommodation in a 4-star hotel and €1,500 for expenses. The winner will also receive a chipset signed by Rafa, as will five runners-up! Everyone who submits a suitable video will also receive a $22 MicroMillions Main Event tourney ticket. See below for how to enter.

He does? Wikipedia lists his primary residency as Majorca and a bunch of interviews i checked quickly seem to corroborate this.

Is that 9m figure actually true? I would have guessed Nike not even paying that! **** me, he must be making a fortune with other endorsements.
