The Spaniard was today in Madrid at the launch of the VR Movistar Nadal - a virtual reality game with which they can train and take part in the Rafa Nadal Challenge in Madrid.

Meanwhile, in Majorca, the III Ten Pro Global Junior Tour, held at the Rafa Nadal Academy got underway.

It is an annual tournament for young tennis players, that began today and will run through until Sunday at the Academy facilities located in Manacor. 

The organisation of the tournament expects around 250 boys and girls to participate from all over the world as with past editions.

The Ten Pro Global Junior Tour is a tournament for young tennis athletes consisting of seven international tournaments that take place in Europe and the United States of America. 

Nadal is keen to give younger players the chance to develop their skills at his academy and admits even his rival Roger Federer has pledged his support.

Despite the pair being fierce rivals on court, Federer is still looking to support the Spaniard’s project.

Nadal explained: “Roger Federer said that he would bring his sons to the Rafael Nadal Tennis Academy.”

Federer has twin sons, Leo and Lennart, three.

"I would say that it is the most important professional and vital project of my career, it is very special for me,” Nadal added.

“The Academy is a training centre for athletes where they are given all the possible opportunities so that they can reach their maximum potential, and is equipped with the latest technology applied to sports.”
