TheOuterCourts.com has obtained three exclusive photos from Rafael Nadal's seven-month hiatus from tennis as he recovered from a knee injury. The photos were discovered in Nadal's bag during his Bag Check for Tennis Channel late Thursday evening.
The three Polaroid photos capture Nadal fishing in various parts of the world, something he said he did a lot of while away from the game he loves. The two-time champion at Indian Wells told reporters in his pre-tournament press conference yesterday that more time to go fishing was one of the positives from his injury.
It looks like he really enjoyed himself during his rehabilitation.
Nadal's first match back on the hardcourt will be Saturday versus American Ryan Harrison.
