5 Things You May Not Know About Rafa Nadal

1. He was in a Shakira music video

Presented without comment:


2. He is afraid of dogs

For a man who clearly feels no fear on the tennis court, he fears dogs, even saying in his 2010 autobiography, “I doubt their intentions.” Perhaps he needs a starter dog… imagine Rafa carrying around a toy poodle? HA!


3. You don’t want to play golf with him


“I am decidedly unfriendly during a golf game, from the first hole to the last,” he wrote in his autobiography. “I take my cue from Tiger Woods. From start to finish, I barely say a word to my rivals; I certainly don’t compliment them on a good shot. They complain, they get angry with me, curse me for my rudeness.”


4. He is the international ambassador for Quely– a cookie company


Need we say more?


5. The watch he wears is worth $525,000

He has an endorsement deal with Swiss watch maker Richard Mille and his signature watch is worth more than most nice homes.


Must be nice to be Rafa, eh?
