Rafa Nadal has carried out his last training at the facilities of the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar before traveling to Paris with Carlos Moyá for the Roland Garros Tournament.

Rafa Nadal Training

Nadal, whose 33rd birthday falls during the second week of the clay-court major, will be looking to win Roland Garros a record-extending 12th time in 2019.

Last year in Paris, Nadal became the first man in tennis history to win 11 titles at the same Grand Slam championship. This is another incredible achievement for the Mallorcan born sporting star who continues to evolve and excel in the game of tennis.

About the Tournament

Roland Garros was the first Grand Slam tournament to join the Open era in 1968, with many sporting greats gracing the famous clay courts, including Björn Borg, Ivan Lendl, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.

Roland Garros will feature a quartet of winners – Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Stan Wawrinka. In 2018, Nadal became the first man in tennis history to win 11 titles at the same Grand Slam championship.

Meanwhile, Djokovic will be attempting to achieve the ‘Nole Slam’ for the second time in his career. Federer, who clinched the career Grand Slam here a decade ago, makes his return for the first time since a quarter-final run in 2015.
