WATCH: Rafael Nadal gets beaten in a game of yard tennis by his sister
Rafael Nadal has been keeping very active during the lockdown in Spain and he has shared a lot of it on social media, the latest being a game of yard tennis with his sister.
With the sport suspended until at least July 13, Nadal and his fellow professionals are having to come up with ways to keep themselves and fans entertained.
First the 19-time Grand Slam winner gave us a glimpse into life at home as he gave a demo of his cooking skills. Maybe demo is too strong a word.
