RAFA’S ROAD: Politicians call for Mallorca tennis hero to be honoured

The Mallorca wing of the centre-right party has petitioned the Town Hall, suggesting Avenida des Parc, where the Mallorca Tennis Club is situated, is changed to Rafael Nadal Avenue.

Ciudadanos spokesperson Jeroni Ferrer said: “It’s time Mallorca has an avenue with the name of the most famous Mallorca sportsperson in the world.

“He deserves it.”

Nadal now has his eyes on next month’s Wimbledon, as the tennis season moves onto grass.
