Rafa Nadal, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Arnaud Clement, Arevane Rezai and Amelie Mauresmo, among others, took part this afternoon in the kids’ day at Roland Garros. They all played to the sounds of Bob Sinclar, who launched a new musical concept on the Philippe Chatrier court.
This is not the first time that Roland Garros has celebrated a charity event like this. This year the proceeds go to the associations "Fete le mur", "Tennis en liberté" and to the other clubs within the French federation that invest in the areas of education, solidarity, and social issues.
Rafa spent the whole morning at the club. He trained for two hours with Andy Murray under the watchful eyes of hundreds of spectators who were glued to the No.1’s every movement.
These days were useful in adapting to the courts but especially to the new tournament ball, which is much harder than the previous one. "I still haven't trained that much with the new ball. I don't know whether it’s going to suit me or not. You have to test it under different conditions, with sun, rain, cloud, etc", said Rafa at a press conference yesterday.
The first round of the tournament begins in Paris tomorrow, but Rafa probably won´t start play until Tuesday.
Come on Rafa!
