In Rafael Nadal: The Inspiring Story of One of Tennis' Greatest Legends, you will learn the incredible story of one of tennis' best players, Rafael Nadal. For the last two decades, three men have dominated the game of tennis: Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, and Rafael Nadal. Nadal will likely go down as the greatest clay-court player to ever grace the court.

At the time of this writing, Nadal is just 31 years-old, meaning he will likely have a few years of his career left to capture more grand slams. In this unauthorized biography, we'll explore Nadal's journey to becoming one of the all-time greats, and learn what it has taken him to reach where he is today.

Here is a preview of what is inside this book:

An excerpt from the book:

In the early part of the 21st century, Spain has provided the world with two significant contributions to the sports world. One lasted for nearly a decade, and the second continues to amaze as he enters the twilight of his career.
The first is the Spanish national soccer team, who revolutionized the way the game is played thanks to their “tiki-taka” style of quick passing in triangles, emphasis on possession, and intelligent runs into space that stretched opposing defenses. A group of stars led by Andres Iniesta, Xavi, Gerard Pique, Sergio Ramos and many others had an unprecedented amount of success as they bracketed a 2010 World Cup title with European Championship crowns in both 2008 and 2012.

The aesthetic beauty of the tiki-taka in which players feint and move in rapid succession as the ball is effortlessly caressed around the pitch is a stark contrast to the violent beauty of Spain’s other notable sports export, tennis star Rafael Nadal.

A naturally talented yet self-made player, Nadal has turned one of the hardest-hit two-handed shots in the game into a cottage industry of success. His 15 Grand Slam titles are second all-time to arguably the greatest player in the sport’s history and his generational peer Roger Federer. His unrivaled dominance of the clay-court surface, highlighted by his record 10 French Open titles, did not just harken the names of Bjorn Borg and Mats Wilander to tennis historians. They also fall in line without debate behind the man known as “Rafa,” a spitfire of energy who punctuates his key points with a fist pump and a cry of “Vamos!”

In a period when men’s tennis was blessed with three of its greatest players, here is the story of the man who not only challenged greatness but became great himself in the process. This is the story of Rafael Nadal Parera.
