I read somewhere that he gets 2,5m$.year fixed from Nike and bonus on top of that, which is between 3 and 10m

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

surprised Uncle Toni let this go down. this will undoubtedly inspire some kids to play that wouldn't have otherwise. that's a mixed blessing.

Clueless opinion piece from Busted Racquet on this topic: http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/tennis...4901--ten.html

The comments are quite critical of the author, which is nice to see.

It's called sarcasm. Lots of Americans don't get it.

King rafa forever. King rafa we worship you!

This is an absolute genius marketing coup for pokerstars. He will front all their spanish adverts and I imagine some of their international ones too. Rafa is pretty much a walking god in Spain yet has international appeal.

He has a home in London. All he had to do was produce a utility bill and bank account.

Rafa is going to withdraw from Wimbledon after the 3rd round to go play the One Drop.

And lol at people sending in advice to start at small stakes and work your way up. Of course you're going to want to grind $2 tournaments with a 9 figure bank balance.

It's not cheating if you don't get caught...

I still prefer Djokovic though.

People have been advising Nadal to start small?? Genuinely livid with that, obv advise him to transition from play money to high stakes cash. Scout no.2?

Well I don't think nadal is short of a few quid but it wouldnt look good for stars if he played decent stakes and lost. I imagine when he has his brief session online ( which might not even be him playing) he will play micro sngs as it would appeal to casual players.
