We watched the first four episodes of Rafael Nadal’s academy series for you on Amazon Prime Video.
If at the beginning everything works well with some confidences of Toni Nadal: “At the time we had trouble finding opponents to play with Rafa”, and some archival footage, the series quickly turns to promoting the structure of the Spaniard, and it can even get awkward.
On the other hand, Rafa’s interventions are well distilled and confirm his personality and his values.
We retained the passage on the defeat where the Mallorcan sets a real line: “It’s normal not to accept defeat, it’s a question of self-esteem. Every day, we give our best to be ready, to fight. To accept defeat without saying anything would mean not respecting all the efforts that have been made and produced. Being angry after a defeat is therefore a good sign of maturity while having the ability to accept and analyze it. “
