Rafael Nadal rides a bike to go grocery shopping. Watch video

first_imgWorld No.1 Rafael Nadal is not only busy brushing aside his opponents at the Wimbledon but he also makes sure he buys groceries before heading home from the All England Club.Nadal was spotted buying groceries from a posh market in south-west London on Tuesday after outclassing his first-round opponent Dudi Sela 6-3, 6-3, 6-2.According to a report in Daily Mail, Nadal some vegetables and meat at Bayley and Sage. The store in south west London is said be one of most expensive ones, where a tomato can cost as much as 2 pound each while a loaves of bread can cost 4 pound each.”Very happy with the win today and after the match, before going home, a bit of groceries…. @wimbledon #groceries,” Nadal posted a few pictures on Instagram.Two days later, US Open Tennis Championships posted a video on Facebook in which Nadal was seen riding a bike to go grocery shopping.”When you’ve won 17 Grand Slams, but they still won’t let you take the car to go grocery shopping… ????”On Saturday, the two-time Wimbledon champion completed a hat-trick of straight-set wins to reach the fourth round.The Alicante-based 19-year-old played his part in an entertaining duel as he chased after everything Nadal could throw at him – and in turn kept the Spaniard on Centre Court longer than he would have liked.advertisementBut the world number one, chasing a third title at the All England Club, stuck to his own game plan to ensure he reached the second week of the grasscourt major without dropping a set.Nadal has endured his fair share of losing to young upstarts at Wimbledon, having lost to players ranked 100 or lower in four of his five previous appearances, but there was no danger of that happening on Saturday.His main target appeared to be getting off court before the 3pm local time kickoff of England’s World Cup quarter-final showdown with Sweden.De Minaur made him play 26-minutes of extra time but the final result was never in doubt and a lunging volley winner sealed the win – and prompted a mass exodus from Centre Court as fans rushed to watch the football World Cup 2018 quarter-final between England and Sweden on their phones and tablets elsewhere in the grounds. England won 2-0 and booked a place in the semi-finals for the first time in 28 years.The Spaniard will next play Jiri Vesely from the Czech Republic as he bids to reach the Wimbledon quarter-finals for the first time since finishing runner-up to Novak Djokovic in 2011.(With inputs from Reuters)last_img read more
