Mallorca | Murray washed out

Rain hit the island of Mallorca where Andy Murray is ‘convalescing’ by playing a Challenger singles tournament to help him regain physically and mentally following the hip resurfacing surgery he underwent last January

I'm very happy to have Andy Murray playing there, It's great news for us, of course, but for him and for the world of sport that's great news and I wish him the very best. Rafa Nadal

Playing in the Rafa Nadal Open, only his third singles tournament of the year, he will have to wait until late Thursday to play his third-round match against Matteo Viola.

In the meantime, Rafa Nadal who is competing at the US Open, revealed that he had texted his friend offering the use of his yacht to help his recovery.

“I just texted him when I knew that he was going to play at the academy,” Nadal told reporters after beating John Millman at Flushing Meadows

Nadal, who loves the sea, has placed an order for a custom 80-foot luxury super-yacht that boasts a spa pool and a wet bar.

Though it will not be delivered until 2020, he is known to climb aboard his other million-dollar vessel to go on holiday living on the sea, That yacht is the one on offer but it’s not known whether Murray has accrpted the invitation.

“I just texted him a couple days ago saying, ‘If you need anything, just let me know. If you want to go out with the boat or anything, I can help you, just let me know.'”

Nadal also revealed his delight at seeing Murray back on the court, especially at his own challenger tournament in his home-town of Manacor in Mallorca.

“I’m very happy to have Andy Murray playing there,” he said. “It’s great news for us, of course, but for him and for the world of sport that’s great news and I wish him the very best.”
