Second Serve


By Richard Pagliaro | @Tennis_Now | Monday, February 19, 2024

The king of clay showed his superb grass game last weekend.

Rafael Nadal aims to launch his comeback at Indian Wells next month—and already celebrate a winning return on the golf course.

The Spanish superstar captured the title at the Balearic Mid Amateur Golf Championship.

The 22-time Grand Slam champion shot a two-round total of 147, which is three over par, to take the title. Nadal finished seven strokes ahead of the second-place finisher.

Nadal, who of course plays tennis left-handed, is actually a natural right-hander who plays golf, writes and brushes his teeth right handed.

"I love the game of golf in general," Nadal said.

The king of clay, now officially lord of the links, may well hit some Palm Springs courses prior to his planned Indian Wells return.
