Twitter Web App : #Nadal on Uncle Toni: “He was the coach of the Manacor Tennis Club, and when I was three years old, I started going there. When I was eight, it did seem that I had a little bit of outstanding qualities. We took things seriously, we had ambitious goals."

Twitter Web App : #Cecchinato: "I hope to get vaccinated as soon as possible. That's the only solution to make this tragedy come to an end. The bubble life is heavy. We miss playing in front of the crowds." gazzettadelsud.it/articoli/sport…
