Poker was Nadal's main past-time during injury

Poker was Nadal's main past time during injury

Rafael Nadal was forced to take a hiatus from his professional tennis career due to a long-term injury sustained at Wimbledon. During his off time in Spain Nadal could do little more than play golf and work on his online poker skills, which according to the star is the only thing which kept him sane. "Those were the only two things in which I could really compete over those months, golf and poker". Rafael Nadal's manager was smart enough to cash in on the situation and signed him on to Pokerstars stable's long list of celebrity sportsmen.
