Rafa in clay. Yes amazing. Legends are made of different stuff.
Okaaayyy, Rafael Nadal is not only the King of Clay; he is now MADE of clay thanks to this life-sized sculpture created with red tennis court clay (the exact kind used at the French Open, of course). Go Nike.
Until Sunday, no one in history had ever won nine men's grand slam singles titles in Paris. Rafa IS the GOAT on clay.
The unusual sculpture was installed in the window of the Cinquième Set (5th set) tennis store in the heart of Paris. The plaque next to the statue reads:
"Legends are made from different stuff."
