Rafael Nadal set social media ablaze yesterday after he posted the following images on his Instagram account. It shows Rafa back on hard court and we assume he is preparing for the shortened US Open Swing. The US Open begins next month on hard court before a shortened clay season leading to Roland Garros and the French Open.
Eagle eyed tennis fans will notice that Rafa is hitting with a new looking Babolat Pure Aero. This newish paint scheme features a little bit of purple at 4 o clock. Does this mean a new Babolat is on the way?
