Rafael Nadal was presented with an honorary doctoral degree in Madrid on Monday
Rafael Nadal was all smiles as he received an honorary doctoral degree, Doctor Honoris Causa, from the European University of Madrid on Monday.
The 28-year-old is in the Spanish capital ahead of the Madrid Masters, where he is the defending champion and four-time winner.
Nadal was clearly thrilled to be honoured at the University, as he posted the picture above on his Twitter account and wrote: “Very happy to be Doctor Honoris Causa by the @UEuropea Thank you very much for this great honor #nadalhonorisue.”
The nine-time French Open champion will be looking to return to winning ways in the build-up to Roland Garros after he suffered a semi-final loss to Novak Djokovic at the Monte-Carlo Masters last month.
