Rafael "Rafa" Nadal finally catches a break. After coming oh so close to defeating World No. 1 Roger Federer in a classic final at Wimbledon, Rafa takes a much needed vacation in his hometown of Mallorca, Spain.
Rafa looks relaxed playing soccer on the beach with friends (no doubt keeping his trademark footwork sharp), fishing, and keeping that body tight. With the US Open Series starting soon, he'll need the rest.
His summer tennis schedule features stops in the ATP Masters Series Canada in Montreal (5th August), ATP Masters Series Cincinnati (13th August), and then the US Open (27th August).
