Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

  1. Rafa Nadal was born in 1986, is considered worldwide as one of the best players in tennis history and the best of all time on clay courts. To date, he has been champion in 14 Grand Slam tournaments, making him the second professional player with the most titles in tennis history. Also throughout his career he has suffered a series of injuries that have prevented him to play for long periods of time. He has also achieved with Spain the gold medal in the Olympic Games of Beijing 2008 in individual modality and the gold medal in the Olympic Games of Rio de Janeiro 2016 in modality of doubles. He is also part of the Davis Cup Team in Spain since 2004, having won four times.

    To conclude, I think Rafa Nadal is the best in the world for all Spanish people since at his young age he has achieved many titles compared to other great players. It has also achieved the highest number of consecutive wins over the same surface. Despite all his faults and injuries he will always be the best of them all.
