Rafael Nadal – former World No. 1 is well-known as one of the best tennis players of all time. The Spaniard full name is Rafael “Rafa” Nadal Parera, who has gained 11 Grand Slam titles, of which seven are at Roland Garros, making the current World No. 3 the near undoubted GOAT on clay.

Nevertheless, the Spanish professional ahead of his topspin-laced forehand and his unbelievable movement around the court, there is something else that makes the fans to call – Rafael Nadal Rafael Nadal….., He has a list of superstitions, which he calls routines, many of them odd, that he does before or in all of his games.

Before every point, Rafael Nadal adjusts his both the socks – so that each are at exactly the same level. Generally, in the pregame sit-down, Nadal spends over 30 seconds pulling his socks up and down, and between points. This is one of the least familiar traits, but still an amusing habit to have on a tennis court.

Instead of giving his trophies the usual kiss, Rafael Nadal gives his a “love bite.” Rafa always has to arrange his water bottles very, very carefully and always brings two bottles to the match. He also makes sure that the brand name of both are facing the court, he is about to play on at each change.

Foremost thing, Nadal never steps on the lines before or after any point, as he also makes sure that his right foot goes over ahead of his left foot, for some unidentified reason.
