Rafa Receives Replica of the French Open Statue

Rafael Nadal, the 22-time Grand Slam champion, received a replica of the statue that was unveiled in his honor at Roland Garros in May 2021. The replica, which is 1/10th the size of the original piece, was presented to Nadal by Gilles Moretton, President of the French Tennis Federation, and Amelie Mauresmo, Director of Roland Garros, at the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar in Spain. 

The statue has been given a special location in the Rafa Nadal Museum, which houses all the trophies the Spanish tennis star has won throughout his career.

Nadal expressed his gratitude and joy at having the replica at the Museum, which is located in his hometown. He described Roland Garros as the most important place in his career, and having the statue there is a great honor. 

Nadal’s family and team are also thrilled to have the replica in a place that is so close to them. The statue is now alongside Nadal’s numerous trophies, allowing everyone to come and see it.

The statue, which depicts Nadal in his signature position of serving, is made of bronze and stands at 3.2 meters tall. The original statue was unveiled in Paris in May 2021, on the 10th anniversary of Nadal’s seventh French Open title. 

The statue has become an iconic symbol of Nadal’s legendary career and his domination on the clay courts of Roland Garros. The replica at the Rafa Nadal Museum is a testament to his enduring legacy in the world of tennis.
