Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray, Roger Federer Hit the Wimbledon Practice Courts on Saturday
(June 22, 2013) With Wimbledon set to kick-off main draw play on Monday, several top players hit the grass courts of the All England Club on Saturday to prepare for the season’s third Slam, including Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and more.
Rafael Nadal looked right at home on the grass, but he seems to have caught the British bug. And yes, it’s contagious. Someone should remind him he’s Spanish!
And yes, even champions take shirtless breaks on make-shift seats.
Afterwards, Nadal sported a stylish white Nike jacket as he posed for a photo with an excited fan.
Scot Andy Murray also hit the courts on Saturday under the watchful eye of his coach Ivan Lendl.
And Ross Hutchins, a doubles player who recently finished his chemo treatment and is one of Murray’s best friends, joined in on the fun. Nice to see the 28-year-old Brit in such good spirits!
It’s all fun and games though until Murray forgets how to get dressed, and worse yet, how to hold a tennis racquet. I think you’re doing it wrong, Mr. Murray.
Roger Federer also enjoyed a nice hit with Lleyton Hewitt, complete with Hewitt’s 4-year-old son Cruz crashing the party from the stands.
