World No.2 Rafael Nadal is not being able to accept various challenges during the coronavirus shutdown. He revealed that he has been resting and recovering during his quarantine and was not able to take the challenges.


Athletes are accustomed to playing their respective sport throughout the year. However, the coronavirus pandemic has shut down all the major sporting events for more than two months. Consequently, the sportspeople are confined to stay at their home during the public health crisis.

However, these athletes have to keep themselves in perfect shape and in fine fettle during these times. Hence, they are trying to work out at their home to keep themselves fit. Subsequently, Nike came up with a Living room challenge to inspire the fans to work out while staying indoors.

The Living Room Cup is a digital workout series offering a new space for the fans to compete against Nike pro athletes through weekly fitness challenges. However, Nadal couldn’t compete in the competition as he was resting during this period.

Earlier, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic nominated Nadal to take their challenges. Andy Murray and his wife also posed a challenge for Rafa and Xisca. However, the Spaniard didn’t accept any of those challenges.

“The Nike living room cup – the one cup I haven’t won. I have been resting and recovering. So I was not able to compete” said Nadal.

“The Living Room Cup is done and I’ve been watching you. Happy to see so many of you around the world staying healthy and keep moving around during these times, some of you even beating the pros!” he wrote on an Instagram post.

Tennis players are used to being busy on the tour which lasts for almost 11-months a year. Consequently, keeping themselves busy is a big task for tennis players during the global health crisis. Hence, these challenges are a way to keep themselves and their fans busy and motivated during the public crisis. We hope to see more such challenges from our favorite tennis players.
