Is Rafael Nadal Spain’s greatest ever sportsperson?
Former world No 2 Alex Corretja thinks so and it’s hard to argue against it.

Spare a thought for ball boy Justin Arrington-Holmes after he missed out on a massive pay day.
Arrington-Holmes was given the racket that Serena Williams demolished during the infamous 2018 US Open final defeat against Naomi Osaka.
He sold it for $500 to a collectibles store in New York City, but that same racket is expected to be sold for $50,000 at an auction.
If you have a spare $50,000 in your wallet, then you have until December 7 to bid on the racket.
