Rafael Nadal awarded Camino Real Award in Madrid

Rafael Nadal received the Camino Real award from the Spanish monarchy at the Alcala de Henares University near Madrid.

The Camino Real award is given to Spaniards who improve the positive image of Spain in the United States via their achievements and it's a very long list of those for Nadal. To remind you of some, let's just say he won the US Open four times.

While fans have been speculating for days whether Nadal will follow Federer in retirement, the Spaniard seemed to dismiss that in his speech saying that he plans on representing Spain proudly while still competing:

"The intention is to continue to carry the name of Spain around the world while I am still active and competing."

Spain's King Felipe was present for the ceremony said:

"He learned very early on how to handle physical suffering and how not to not to lose his temper and concentration because of it."

He is set to arrive in London tomorrow for the Laver Cup.
