In recent weeks, a number of players from the pro tour have been preparing for the 2024 season at the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar. Many of them had the chance to practise with Rafa Nadal himself, who will be back in action soon at the ATP 250 event in Brisbane.


Frenchman Richard Gasquet, a former world No. 7 and winner of 16 ATP Tour titles, was one of the big names to visit Manacor, where he enjoyed some intense training as he prepared for a very special season. Germany’s Jan Lennard-Struff also graced the academy with his powerful tennis in the same week that the ATP named him 2023’s Comeback Player of the Year after a period plagued by injuries. Last season he climbed from 163 to 21 in the world thanks to a great year in which he reached the finals of the Mutua Madrid Open and Stuttgart.


Emil Ruusuvuori is now a regular at the academy during the preseason. The complex has a special place in his heart after he won the “Rafa Nadal Open by Movistar” Challenger event in Manacor in 2018. Since then, the current world number 69 has always fine-tuned his game for a new season at the academy. Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar alumnus Jaume Munar is back ‘home’ after some late-season injuries as he attempts to find his A-game.



Two of Spain’s young guns have also been alongside some of the best players on the planet in recent weeks. Dani Rincón, who rose from No. 420 to 181 in the ATP rankings in 2023, is getting ready for his assault on the Australian Open qualifiers after picking up 2 ITF titles and reaching five Challenger semi-finals this year. Martín Landaluce, who trained with Rafa Nadal today, is also looking to earn himself a place among the elite in 2024.


Young Jordanian star Abdullah Shelbayh, who recently competed in the Next Gen ATP Finals, has also put in a few weeks’ intense training in a year in which he has progressed from number 470 to 187 in the world ranking. Another player polishing his game in Manacor was Hong Kong’s Coleman Wong, who reached his first Challenger Tour finals and won two ITF titles this year.


Junior world number 1 Alina Korneeva has been training at the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar all month. At just 16 years of age, she smashed several records in 2023, as well as winning the Junior Australian Open and reaching the semi-finals of Junior Wimbledon. Yaroslav Demin, who was boys’ world number 1 in 2023, reached the Wimbledon final and claimed the French Open doubles title.


All of them have embraced Rafa’s inspirational spirit in recent weeks with an intense preseason they hope will bear fruit in 2024.
