Rafael Nadal Mallorcan tennis player honoured as LAUREUS SPORTSMAN OF THE YEAR

2010

Name: Antonia Ferriol

Resident Director

CIEE Palma de Mallorca, Spain

 

Rafa Nadal, only 24 years old, is maybe the most international Mallorcan around the world http://www.rafaelnadal.com

Four days ago, on February 7 of 2011 he has been honoured as the 'Laureus Sportsman of the Year” in Abu Dhabi after enjoying the best season in his career in 2010.

He is also the first man since 1969 to win the French Open, Wimbledon and US Open titles in the same year.

Let me quote what he said when receiving the award: “Hi everyone, Thank you very much for all of the support you give me. To be given this award is a huge honour and I feel very happy to be holding this statuette.”
