World No. 2 Rafael Nadal, of Spain, has posted a new message to his fans online as he tries to lift the spirits of his countrymen and his fans worldwide during the coronavirus pandemic. Nadal has been in quarantine himself during the lockdown and has been keeping his fans posted on what he has been doing while being indoors.

 

 
In the latest video, Nadal is seen working out and giving his fans a message of hope and positivity. In the video, the 19 time Grand Slam champion says, “Hello everybody. Here we are guys, tough times but we’re getting closer.

From today I’ve tried to make a change and stay positive counting the days that go by because less is left. Greetings everyone and cheer up. VAMOS!”

Nadal has not made an official comment yet on the cancelation of Wimbledon which was announced on Wednesday. As of now, all tennis tournaments scheduled till 12th July have been cancelled. Spain is one of the worst affected countries by the global pandemic.

The coronavirus pandemic death toll in Spain passed 10,000 on Thursday, as the country reported its highest number of deaths in a single day since the outbreak began. There were 110,238 infections reported as of Thursday.

Rafael Nadal Expresses Gratitude for Kind Gesture by Novak Djokovic
We have exhaustively talked about the Big Three’s ongoing accomplishments in tennis. As we take a break from tennis amid the global fiasco we are facing, the off-court nature of these great players has just shone ever brighter. Rafael Nadal started a vigorous campaign a little while ago to help out the medical authorities with financial aid. And now, Novak Djokovic has chipped in to add to Rafa’s relief fund.

Djokovic and Nadal have given us the most amazing rivalry I have ever witnessed in any sport. The two colossal forces have spent the last decade locked in a battle for supremacy, and it will continue after this break too.

We could talk about this rivalry for days on end, but we are not here to discuss and debate about that but rather their humanitarian efforts.

Dire times like these are a threat for all humanity, not just any one nation, or family or person. Such times call for us all to stand together and guide ourselves out of the mess. Ironically, though, social distancing is the best weapon we have against this disease right now.

But that matters not, for we may all be apart, but we stand together in spirit. And that’s exactly what Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal are doing. Nadal’s campaign aims to amass a figure of about $12 million in order to help the Red Cross.

many Spanish athletes took Nadal’s call to heart and chipped in. And now, Novak Djokovic has done the same.

Rafael Nadal took to twitter to extend his gratitude towards his Serbian tennis rival.

These two men have amazed us time and again on the courts, and they keep doing the same off it as well. As blessed as we call ourselves in the tennis community, to have witnessed these greats, in truth they are a blessing to society as a whole.

Rafael Nadal

They have given so many lessons in life and tennis and they will continue to do so as long as they live.
