Rafael Nadal is relaxing in Formentera, in the Balearic Islands, with a group of friends. The Spanish tennis star has endured a difficult month after crashing out of Wimbledon early to 19-year-old Australian Nick Kyrgios.
The 156th ranked wildcard’s massive serve helped him to a 7-6, 5-7, 7-6, 6-3 victory on his Centre Court debut in one of the biggest shocks in tennis history.
Nadal shared a snap with fans of Facebook on Tuesday as he left London for the beach.He captioned it, ‘We’re leaving Wimbledon.I want to thank your incredible support, both when things work out and when they don’t.’
However, he was all smiles in Formentera as he soaked up the sun.
In the evening he posted a photo of him and six friends eating out while overlooking the harbour with the caption on the shot on his Facebook page: ‘Enjoying a great meal with stunning views’.
On Tuesday he was in Ibiza and could be seen spear fishing and snorkelling from a boat with his buddies while wearing a very bold choice of pink shorts.
As a massive football fan, Rafael alsorecently paid his respects to Spanish football player Alfredo Di Sefano, who sadly passed away.
Leaving a tribute on his Facebook page which read, ‘Today is a very sad day for football because a legend has left us. My deepest condolences to his family.’
Rafael’s long-term girlfriend XiscaPerello was nowhere to be seen during his trip. They were last seen together last month having dinner in Paris.
