The Rafael Nadal French Open preparation took a big hit after he was dumped out in the quarter-final of the Madrid Open by eventual champion Alexander Zverev of Germany. The former World No 1 was beaten in straight sets 4-6, 4-6 by his German opponent. Apart from losing the match, the Spaniard also lost his second spot in the latest ATP men’s singles ranking. Nadal dropped to the third spot while Russia’s Daniil Medvedev reclaimed the world number two spot. After the loss in Madrid, Nadal’s next assignment will be the Rome Masters 2021 but ahead of the tournament, the Spaniard posted a picture of himself relaxing near the sea, presumably in his hometown of Mallorca.
Fans go crazy over Rafael Nadal’s abs
The 20-time Grand Slam champion just a couple of days back posted a picture of himself in shorts and standing on a deck. The picture was made even more special thanks to the abs flaunted by Nadal. Fans were quick to comment on the photo on social media.
