Rafael Nadal silently came to my home district of Anantapur, Andhra Pradesh and inaugurated a tennis school. He will be coming from next year on wards for a few days every year and train students at the school. He will also be contributing 50 Lakh rupees every year to run the institute. How many celebrities can do something so big without any publicity. New respect from me for the world n01 tennis player. Leander and Mahesh can learn a thing or two.
Nadal, who lost in the Shanghai Open quarterfinals last weekend, flew into Bangalore yesterday and quietly travelled the 175km to Anantpur in a car, eschewing official security or publicity. He was accompanied by mother Anna Maria Nadal Parera and sister Maria Isabel.After inaugurating the school — the first outside Spain that the Rafael Nadal Foundation has opened — the champion interacted with the 50-odd students and played a game against district collector B. Janardhan Reddy.
