Rafael "Rafa" Nadal is gearing up for his assault on the North American hardcourts. The Spanish World No. 2 took a much needed vacation after his determined return to the Wimbledon men's final, pushing Roger Federer to his first 5-set Grand Slam final battle ever.
Here's Rafa signing autographs for fans at this week's Mercedes Cup in Stuttgart, Germany. We're LOVING the vintage inspired Nike t-shirt (circa 1980's) - very cool.
