Indian Wells 2016: Rafael Nadal at practice

Thanks a lot to Tony for sharing his story and pictures!

Despite attending the BNP Paribas Open every year since 2008, I have never been in an ideal position to take some good Rafa Nadal photos… until today! Rafa has been working hard on his comeback everyday since Saturday on the practice courts of the BNP Paribas Open. It seems crazy to say a player who’s currently ranked #5 in the world is “working on his comeback,” but that’s how high the bar is for Rafa–who is arguably the G.O.A.T.. It would have been better if there was sunlight on the court instead of shadow, but I’m pretty pleased with the results. I’m also pleased with Rafa’s awesome jersey-style tennis outfit and his $850,000 Richard Mille watch. Just another day in Tennis Paradise!
