He’s just a really big one!

Tennis professional Rafael Nadal (36) is not only popular because he is great athletically, but also because he is a great person. The Spaniard, who is missing the Australian Open due to a hip injury, has had his own tennis academy in Manacor since 2016.

It has long been a popular training location for professionals from all over the world. Jan-Lennard Struff (33) also completed his season preparation there in the winter. The Warsteiner, who achieved his best ranking in 2023 at an advanced tennis age (21st place), will meet the Australian Rinky Hijikata (22) in his first round match in Melbourne on Monday.

Before that, when visiting Mallorca, there was the all-round carefree package from the 22-time Grand Slam winner. Struff: “They gave us great support. The accommodation was offered free of charge for part of my team.” So not just for him.

Great gesture! As a highlight, the current number 24 was even allowed to train with him. “It’s always special for me to play with him.”

How did Struff even get into the Nadal Academy? “You are always looking for the perfect preparation, which is not possible in Germany. At home you are also busy with family activities: taking children to daycare, etc. It is difficult to say no to that.”

After looking at it a lot, it was clear: “I’m going there for two weeks to have the rhythm of training, eating, sleeping and hitting a lot of balls. There were a lot of top players there, the training conditions are great with outdoor and indoor courts, sand and hard courts.”

Then the conditions are not bad to survive the first round for the second time in the tenth participation in Melbourne. So far, the first Grand Slam tournament of the year is far from being one of the second best German’s favorite tournaments.
