Miami, Florida (PRWEB) March 27, 2015
Rafael "Rafa" Nadal is a 14-time Grand Slam winner and the No.3 tennis player in the world. Nadal will be competing in the Miami Open at the Crandon Park Tennis Center in Key Biscayne. As the Sabadell Brand Ambassador, Nadal took some time away from the Miami Open to meet with Sabadell clients at the JW Marriott Marquis.
“Nadal is a wonderful Brand Ambassador for Sabadell, not only because of his Spanish background but because of his commitment to excellence and his unwavering work ethic. He is inspiring and a great example that hard work and dedication pays off.” said Fernando Perez Hickman, Chairman of the Board of Sabadell United Bank and managing director for Sabadell Americas.
During the meet and greet Nadal discussed his latest tennis training tool, a “smart racket” that records technical data with every hit he makes. After a match or training session the data can be downloaded to a smart phone or computer to help analyze a player’s strengths or where they need improvement. The International Tennis Federation historically prohibited player analysis technology but as of last January players are now allowed to use "smart" equipment, like Nadal's new racket and heart-rate monitors.
“It’s an innovation and a new technology for tennis that I think works for professionals. It helps to see the things you are doing when you are playing, it tells you after every practice and every match how many shots you hit and whether it was with your forehand or back hand, or if it is a volley or slice” said Nadal.
The 2015 Miami Open will take place from March 23 - April 5, 2015 and will conclude with the women’s final on Saturday, April 4th and the men’s final on Sunday, April 5.
