We here at Beyond The Baseline have been fooled. Last week we checked in on Rafael Nadal’s post-Wimbledon activities and it seemed as though his days back home in Mallorca revolved around practice, video games, cooking and hanging with friends.
But it turns out his Facebook page only tells part of the story. The eight-time French Open champion has been moonlighting as a bartender/DJ and practicing new and creative ways of jumping off a boat.
Nadal, who is the face of Bacardi’s “Champions Drink Responsibly” campaign, hosted a party in Mallorca over the weekend for a few lucky contest winners. He mingled with fans, shook up some beverages and tried his hands at the decks. I’m sure he was able to work some Julio Iglesias into the dance mix.

The local news even reported on the event. Most endearing moment of the video? Rafa carefully positioning the pillows as if they were his own water bottles (13 seconds in). Some habits die hard.
