What goes into the making of a champion? Is it nerves of steel, the calm of the ocean depth, or is it sheer force honed by years of training? In the case of one of the all time greats in the game of tennis, Rafael Nadal, it would be all three. The beloved King of Clay may not be winning as many grand slams as he is used to, but a champ never says never. Besides, he’s got fashion on his mind.
