World No.2, Rafael Nadal has been a dominant force in tennis for most of his career. A prime example of the Spaniard’s dominance on the court is his record-equalling 20 Grand slams. It helped Nadal cement his place in the history books. The ‘King of Clay’ is not only an inspiration for his fans but also a revered figure amongst his peers.
Nadal’s tremendous achievements are not only limited to his exploits on court, but they extend to his off the court activities as well. The Rafa Nadal Foundation, which the Spaniard has started, is dedicated to improving the lives of underprivileged children. Nadal recently revealed his motivation behind starting such an initiative and shared some insights regarding the working of the foundation.
The goal is to try to create equal opportunities: Rafael Nadal
The Spaniard recently interacted with the children of the Rafa Nadal Foundation and opened up about his vision when he started the Rafa Nadal Foundation. He said, “Well, the goal is to try to create equal opportunities. At the end of the day, I think that these children may be predetermined because of where they were born or because of their family situation or economic situation to have an uncertain future.”
The 20-time Grand Slam title winner also shared details about the functioning of the foundation. Nadal said, “So, what we try to do is give them the tools they need for their own personal and social development and we try to get them to see that, although they might be in a more problematic situation now, they have a future and there is a way forward that will allow them to fulfill their dreams.”
