Rafael Nadal Says Tennis Gets in the Way of his Fishing - 1

Although he just won the men's final match at the French Open and had his $376,000 watch (Yes, you read that correctly.  His watch cost $376,000.) returned to him by police after being stolen, Spanish tennis champ Rafael Nadal’s probably thinking about fishing. 

He says that’s how he unwinds and has a good time.  He does admit however that it’s not his best sport. 

Nadal told 10sBalls, “I’m not that good. I’m an amateur at fishing. When I go, I go with friends who really know what to do. When I am able to have time and holiday and go, I go.” 

Part of the problem might have to do with the schedule. “You have to go early in the morning. It’s not that I don’t like to go early in the morning. I love to wake up early and go fishing – but I practice in the morning. That’s the thing,” Nadal said. “My uncle [who is also his trainer] would not be very happy if I tell him that today I going to practice in the afternoon because I go for fishing. That’s the problem.”

Well, at least he got that watch back that costs more than my house.

What idiot stole his watch? I mean, did they think they could sell a $376k one of a kind item that has Nadal's name on it and is all over the news that it was stolen?
