Nadal drops off Roland Garros trophy at his Academy Museum in Mallorca

Rafael Nadal returned home to Mallorca and he dropped off his Roland Garros trophy in the Museum which is part of his Academy for everyone to see.

Not long ago Rafael Nadal won his 13th Roland Garros title by defeating Novak Djokovic in the final. Now he is back home in Mallorca and he used that opportunity to drop off a replica of the trophy at his Museum which is part of the Rafael Nadal Tennis Academy.

Speaking of that he said:

“I’m now here in Mallorca, in Manacor and of course I’m very happy and satisfied with what I have achieved.

He continued by saying:

“It’s no less true that it’s a bittersweet feeling because we have been through some very complicated months in various senses and the most important thing is health. The second is the economic situation, which is causing many families to go through a hard time. We have to trust that [things] will improve, trust that the vaccine will come as soon as possible and that we can all go back to living in a more pleasant world and be happier."

He also took the chance to thank everybody for the messages of support in the past few weeks. It meant a lot to him:

“I also wanted to thank you for all the messages of support over the past few weeks. To me, although we have been a little more distanced than normal, as we have not been able to have direct contact, receiving so many messages of support on social media and directly to my mobile has helped me, without a doubt. Thank you so much for the support. Finally, I would like to tell you that I am leaving the trophy here in the museum at the Academy, in Manacor, for all of you that would like to see it."
