Rafael Nadal is a legend in the tennis world and has led it alongside big names for over a decade. He’s still going strong and looking to get more championships under his belt before he retires once and for all. He has represented his country, Spain, in various tournaments and made them proud on many occasions. The Spanish government has decided to reward the excellent tennis icon with something that only a few athletes around the world could have thought of. The Spanish government has announced that from 2022 Nadal’s birthday will be celebrated as National Tennis Day in the country.

Rafael Nadal is twenty-time Grand Slam champion and led his country to five Davis Cup victories. He won two gold medals at the Olympics, and one arrived in a singles tournament in 2008, while the other arrived in 2016 in a doubles tournament. Fans and the media must doubt how this decision was initiated and announced. Earlier this month, Roland Garros, one of the main Grand Slam competitions, was taking place and Spanish media covered the event. During a Nadal match against Richard Gasquet in the tournament, the live broadcast was broadcast on Eurosport. During the match, Spanish media began discussing a tweet from former Spanish tennis player Jorge Mir Mayor. The mayor had suggested declaring June 3 – Rafael Nadal’s birthday – as “National Tennis Day”. This quickly caught the attention of the media and Spanish officials, who later filed a proposal with the RFET. People may be wondering how this day could be celebrated from next year. People can participate in some tennis activities across the country to educate people about the sport and the player.
Muy contento que se pueda cumplir !! Gracias https://t.co/O075KLTCGB
