In June last year, unanimous agreement was given at a council meeting in Manacor for a statue to Rafael Nadal. This was after he had just won his fourteenth French Open.

It seems a sense of humour and imagination are in short supply these days. Why not open up a design competition at his school? There must be some talented artists somewhere at the Rafa Nadal International School who could come up with something better than him sitting down.
The man is a sporting icon. He’s based in Manacor - his school is based there. But let’s see him in action guys.
Stan The ManNadal is a native of Manacor.
Nadal is from Porto Cristo. The statue should be in place there. Manacor are stealing his Stardom. A Statue should show Nadal in a full flowing delivery.
Sitting down next to a tree? Surely something more dramatic and appropriate to his talent would be suitable? Otherwise would it not be better to have one of him lying down on a treatment couch :)
