Learn about the incredible life of Rafa Nadal, the dedicated sportsperson who's tenacity and drive has inspired young athletes across the world.

Little Rafa was born in Majorca, Spain. Encouraged by his two uncles, he started playing football and tennis, but found that he particularly excelled on the court. His uncle Toni became his coach and Rafa soon dreamt of winning tournaments. He was fiercly dedicated and worked hard at his technique and stamina – always being the first to arrive at practice and the last to leave. Then, at just fifteen years old, he became a professional, and seven years later was the number one tennis player in the world!

His journey has not been without challenges –
he has faced several injuries and experienced losses – but each time he has come back stronger and more determined than ever to keep living his dream. Despite having won 20 Grand Slam titles, he remains humble and his perseverance and determination are the keys to his success. Today, he is considered one of the best tennis players in history.

This powerful book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the tennis player's life.
