Thanks, Rafael

After 27 years and 75 titles together, Toni Nadal will no longer be training his nephew Rafa. The most acclaimed coach in tennis history writes about his feelings in EL PAÍS

The Masters Cup of this last week was the icing on the cake of my career as coach for my nephew Rafael Nadal.

Many would have given up on the interview, but - rare thing enough on the tour to be highlighted - the Spaniard is a man of his word. So never mind, the interview will end in London, eight days later, at the Masters Cup, the last tournament of the season. ... Read more »
